How Outside Source connects with audiences


Outside Source, broadcast daily on the BBC World Service radio and BBC World News television, provides a broad agenda of ‘real-time’ news. Its style reflects how many of us get our news these days: by reading a headline or short piece of text online.

The programme describes the world as its newsroom. Followers of @BBCOS can contribute to the news agenda, ask questions and find extra material. The style is quick, the story count high, and global input means original stories from a variety of sources get on air even in places where the BBC does not have a correspondent.

The editorial focus is on audience involvement and transparency, so correspondents talk about how they go about their work – and the team sometimes explain their editorial decisions.
