BBC Newsnight

Newsnight is a weekday BBC Television current affairs programme which specialises in analysis and often robust cross-examination of senior politicians. The programme’s regular presenters are currently Kirsty Wark, Emily Maitlis, and Evan Davis.

Several of the programme’s editors over the years have gone on to senior positions within the BBC and elsewhere. Jeremy Paxman was its main presenter for 25 years, until announcing in April 2014 that he was stepping down.
