BTV News @ 5:00 is an hour-long news programme broadcast from Monday-Friday @ 5:00 PM GMT (12:00 PM ET) on the BTV News channel. The show includes a detailed look @ the news, as well as analysis with guests & business, sport & weather updates
The programme started on the 3rd of April of 2006 as part of BTV's relaunch of BTV News presenters, which saw the introduction of the new flagship sister programme, BTV News+ LIVE @ 5:00 programme on sister network BTV News+.
As part of the 2008 rebrand of BTV News, the show moved the studio along with the BTV News Channel, BTV News @ 1:00 & BTV News @ 10:00. The show originally broadcast from Studio N8, but moved to Studio N6
As well as presenting from the studio, the main presenters are called upon to present on location when major stories break. For example, a BTV newsreader reported LIVE from Washington for the 2008 US Presidential Elections & has presented LIVE from Basra for the withdrawal ceremony
Sport, Business & WeatherEdit
The weather, sport & business updates are generally presented from the plasma projection screen away from the main desk, unless they are preceding each other
