Although there are many centers throughout the UK, there is a main center where the main radio and television news broadcasts are produced and delivered to viewers. The West London based facility has been the base for this operation for a while, although new premises are likely to be in place in Central London by 2012.
One part of the operation that is not particular huge is the Parliamentary coverage. This is always broadcasted from the BBC News own studios in Millbank, which is situated in London.
There has been a slight controversy over the years, as many people think that some coverage can be extremely biased. This has rumbled many people in the political industry and the BBC have a constant stream of complaints from many regions or even countries. Many believe that the BBC are there to create instability in their country thanks to their views and for that reason, have banned them from reporting or broadcasting there.
There is no doubt about it, the BBC News department has certainly done well. In 2005, they finally celebrated their 50th anniversary of news broadcasts, a huge milestone. The stability of the new network has been partly due to the fact that the reporters and journalists have managed to find stories that other channels just simply have not.
Looking back into the not so recent events, the 1990s saw some changes for the BBC. The BBC News department realized that their following was a lot bigger than expected, so started to look into how and what they could do to expand their operation much further.
The BBC One bulletins saw a slight change back in 1993, when they redesigned the Silicon Graphics for their re-launch. This was the first part of the steps they would take to brand their channel as the best in another attempt to increase the amount of viewers they had.
