BBC North East & Cumbria is the BBC English Region covering Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham, Teesside and all but the southern part of Cumbria. There is considerable overlap with the BBC regional service transmissions from Leeds. BBC North East and Cumbria also broadcasts from the Bilsdale transmitter in North Yorkshire to towns southwards including Harrogate, York and Northallerton. In the early 1990s transmissions from the Caldbeck transmitter in Cumbria were transferred from Manchester-based BBC North West to the BBC North East region, prompting a name change to BBC North for programmes from Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle.

The current BBC North East & Cumbria name was adopted in autumn 1997, coinciding with a new logo for the BBC as a whole, and the launch of the BBC One hot-air balloon identifications. During the era of the subsequent "dancers idents, regionally-branded idents used the suffix NE & Cumbria beneath the BBC One logo, as the full region name did not fit the small red box in the bottom left that contained the BBC One logo.

Its television service includes the daily "Look North" news programme, the weekly regional magazine programme "Inside Out" and the weekly "Politics Show".

The region is the controlling centre for BBC Tees, BBC Radio Cumbria and BBC Radio Newcastle, and the local editions of the BBC's "Where I Live" websites.

The regional headquarters and television centre is in Spital Tongues, Newcastle upon Tyne.
