News Image
REVIEW, BBC Two’s weekly arts round-up is to join ‘Newsnight’ and run year-round on Friday evenings as ‘Newsnight Review’.
The move will double the number of ‘Review’ programmes broadcast to a total of 50 across the year.
Jane Root, Controller BBC Two, said: “Newsnight Review underlines the BBC’s continued commitment to the arts. This places the arts firmly where they belongs an integral part of the fabric of the television channels.”
From February 2001 Mark Lawson will join the Newsnight team and ‘Newsnight Review’ will broadcast live every Friday from the Newsnight studio from 11.00pm to 11.30pm.
Mark Lawson (pictured) said: “It’s very exciting that review and discussion of the arts and culture has been given a place in one of the world’s best current affairs programmes. Review has always felt happiest to me as a late-night programme – the best place for passionate and quirky argument – and doubling of the number of editions is hugely welcome.”
