"BBC Look East" is the
BBC's regional television newsprogramme for the BBC Eastregion, covering Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshireand parts of Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshireand Northamptonshire.
The programme began in 1959, making it the longest-running regional news programme on the BBC. It is broadcast on
BBC Onefrom its studio in The Forum, Norwich(where BBC Radio Norfolkis also based) and from Hills Road, Cambridge(where BBC Radio Cambridgeshireis also based).
Look East moved to The Forum on 29 September 2003, having previously been based in St Catherine's Close,
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 satelliteservice. 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 Norfolkcould see BBC Look North (Hull), while viewers in Kings Lynnsaw the wrong sub-region of Look East.
In 1997 Look East launched the sub-regional service - "Close Up" - for viewers in
Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshireand 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 Tenboth the East and West of the region receive separate editions of Look East from Norwichand Cambridgerespectively. Both editions of the programme can be received on Sky Digital, on channels 981 and 982.
