Is this really so old?
26 January 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

As I write this review (Jan 2005) Newsnight is celebrating its silver jubilee and I didn't realise it was this old. It first came to our screens in 1980.

Each show usually includes in depth reports on both national and international issues, interviews with famous people including world leaders, a news summery and each programme ends with reviews of the front pages of the following day's newspapers. Newsnight is usually shown on BBC2 at 10.30 pm.

Newsnight has had several presenters over the years including Peter Snow and the current presenters are Kirsty Wark, Gavin Esler and, best of all, the excellent Jeremy Paxman.

Long may Newsnight continue.
