London and its environs have had a news service on BBC television for several decades, but the boundaries of the BBC region have always been a bit hazy due to the coverage areas of the transmitters. Therefore, while the main focus of regional news coverage for this area is the capital itself, in the surrounding sectors the coverage allows them to catch the BBC London signal.

The television newscast was launched as BBC LDN on screen, an abbreviation for London as used in text messages. The name of the newscast is not mentioned verbatim by the presenters.


The BBC London News program is broadcast daily on BBC One as short bulletins. The program has had several changes in its introductions, the most recent being the one that occurred on December 12, 2005, with a new sequence of titles and a musical tune. The current titles show a series of videos with different scenes of London life, separated by a white band that crosses the screen until the BBC London logo appears. Comparisons are unavoidable with regional business competition.


BBC London Radio combines talk shows and music 24/7. The radio station has a diverse group of presenters who have hosted various programs.
