Friday nights are changing a little on OETA.

  • 8:30p     BBC NEWSNIGHT -- A weekly round-up of news and current affairs including interviews with global opinion formers and documentary features from all over the world. Presenters include Jeremy Paxman, Kirsty Wark, Gavin Esler and Emily Maitlis. Thought-provoking and informative, Newsnight offers in-depth analysis of complex global issues. BBC Newsnight is commissioned by BBC World News, which is BBC_Newsnightpresented nationally on public television by KCET Los Angeles.
