"BBC Look East" is the BBC's regional television news programme for the BBC East region, covering Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and parts of Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire.

The programme began in 1959, making it the longest-running regional news programme on the BBC. It is broadcast on BBC One from its studio in The Forum, Norwich (where BBC Radio Norfolk is also based) and from Hills Road, Cambridge (where BBC Radio Cambridgeshire is also based).

Look East moved to The Forum on 29 September 2003, having previously been based in St Catherine's Close, Norwich.

The programme can be watched in any part of the UK (and Europe) on Sky Digital channel 981, and channel 982 for the "west" sub-regional service from Cambridge, on the BBC UK regional TV on satellite service. The services were added to the Sky Digital platform on 29 July 2003. The availability of these services resolved part of the problems caused by the geography of the area that meant some viewers in North Norfolk could see BBC Look North (Hull), while viewers in Kings Lynn saw the wrong sub-region of Look East.

In 1997 Look East launched the sub-regional service - "Close Up" - for viewers in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire. The opt allows the two regions to provide, during the main evening programme, around 10 minutes of news which is more relevant to their area. After the BBC News at Ten both the East and West of the region receive separate editions of Look East from Norwich and Cambridge respectively. Both editions of the programme can be received on Sky Digital, on channels 981 and 982.

TV News via E-mail

In February 2008, Look East became the first tv news bulletin in the UK to launch a daily e-mail version of the programme. More than a promotional tool, it contains an average of 60 links to recently updated regional news, weather and sport in a number of formats. Most of the main news items which appear on the TV programme are displayed on this newsletter, which also previews that evening's programme, expands on stories and features other local BBC services.
