BBC World Overnight Service Continues On TV One

A joint initiative by TVNZ and BBC Worldwide has enabled TV ONE to carry on broadcasting BBC World overnight. A new contract was agreed today in which BBC Worldwide has made it possible for TV ONE to continue the service uninterrupted while still meeting its financial responsibilities.

Shaun Brown, Head of TV ONE, explains: "Thanks to the BBC's understanding of our circumstances, we have found a way of keeping the overnight service running. This is the best possible outcome for BBC World, ourselves and most importantly, our viewers."

Brown continues, "TV ONE recognises that BBC World viewers are committed and passionate about the service. This is our preferred overnight service, it was simply a question of finance and we have reached an agreement that is beneficial to both BBC Worldwide and TVNZ."

David Vine, BBC Worldwide Managing Director Asia Pacific says, "We are delighted that our New Zealand viewers will continue to be able to access BBC World on TV ONE overnight. The agreement that would allow TV ONE to meet their financial responsibilities as well as our viewers being unaffected was our priority and has been achieved."

Originally scheduled to cease broadcast on Monday 18 March 2001, the BBC World overnight service will now continue in its established timeslot.
