The "Tagesschau" (literally "a look at the day" – a development of the term "Wochenschau", the name of the weekly newsreel formerly shown in cinemas) is both the oldest and the most widely watched of German television
newscasts. The first edition was transmitted on NWDR("Nordwestdeutscher Rundfunk") on 26 December 1952, the programme initially going out just three times a week. From 1956, it was broadcast daily from Monday to Saturday, and in 1961, it became a daily programme. The "Tagesschau" has a daily viewership of some 10 million: equivalent to an audience reach of around 33%. Today it is produced by NDR("Norddeutscher Rundfunk") in Hamburg.
The 15-minute bulletin broadcast at 20:00 each evening is the "Tagesschau"'s most widely viewed edition. Other, generally shorter bulletins are broadcast throughout the day. In 1978, the late edition of the "Tagesschau" was replaced by the longer, half-hour "
Tagesthemen" ("Subjects of the Day"), normally broadcast around 22:30 and including background discussion. At around 0:30 on weekday nights, " Nachtmagazin" ("Night Magazine") also includes an analysis of the preceding day's events. The "Tagesschau" team is also responsible for the weekly news review "Wochenspiegel" ("Mirror of the Week").
Although the arrangement has been modernized several times, the "Tagesschau"'s theme music has remained the same since 1956 (when it replaced the music originally adopted in 1952) .
The end of the "Tagesschau" at 20:15 marks the start of the
prime timein German television. An attempt by Sat.1to start their prime time at 20:00 failed miserably. The "Tagesschau" has become an icon in German culture and its significance can be seen in the fact that it is considered impolite to telephone someone during the broadcast.
Today, the "Tagesschau" is the only remaining major news show on German television where the readers do not use a teleprompter.
