PBS and BBC has announced that “Beyond 100 Days,” the half-hour BBC World News nightly public affairs show recorded in Washington, DC and London, will air at 11:30 p.m. ET on PBS stations, following “Amanpour” on PBS. Premiering on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, “Beyond 100 Days” will air weeknights Monday-Thursday, with “BBC World news,” a half hour of the top global news stories of the day, filling the time slot on Fridays.
“Beyond 100 Days” is hosted by Katty Kay in the United States and Christian Fraser in the UK. The logline: With President Trump making headlines each day in the White House, the UK rapidly moving towards its exit from the EU and nearly daily tensions as North Korea tests its long-range missiles, “Beyond 100 Days” cuts to the heart of the seismic stories changing the global political landscape.
Following the day’s big stories with expert insight from the U.S. and around the world, “Beyond 100 Days” will help audiences understand the events that are shaping our world. The half-hour show (full hour on BBC World News) showcases key news and policy makers in the U.S., alongside high-profile guests and expert BBC News reporters around the world. It closely examines the Trump Administration and its global impact, as well as other major international stories, including the Brexit talks, German elections, and relations across Russia, China and the Middle East.
Originally called “100 Days,” the series was intended to cover the first 100 days of President Donald Trump’s term. Following that period, the show was re-named “Beyond 100 Days” after it became clear that the story had longer to run, and has since aired from Monday-Thursday on BBC World News.
