Liquid News


Liquid News

"Liquid News" was the daily round up of entertainment news for BBC Three (formerly BBC Choice) running from May 30, 2000 to April 1, 2004. It was originally a vehicle for presenter Christopher Price. Following his death on April 22, 2002, the show continued with a variety of presenters including Colin Paterson, Claudia Winkleman, Jasmine Lowson, Paddy O'Connell, Jo Whiley and Joe Mace.

The programme evolved from Zero 30, the previous entertainment programme on BBC News 24, also hosted by Price. Once this was dropped from the 24 hour channel, controller of the then BBC Choice, Stuart Murphy took the format and brought it to the channel where it soon became the flagship programme.

Later, after the channel was replaced by BBC Three, the channel's controller, Stuart Murphy stated Liquid News would end as a way to "refresh the channel's output to best serve the audience". The news element of the channel was unaffected by the ending of the programme with 60 Seconds and The 7 O'Clock News already in existence serving as the replacement.
