"ITN World News" was a newscast shown during the late-eighties and most of the nineties. It was either shown on cable or satellite television, or shown internationally. The newscast was broadcast from London, England, and was produced by Independent Television News. A domestic (national) version was also shown in the United Kingdom on terrestrial television.

"ITN World News" began broadcasting on The Super Channel, and aired on NBC Europe, Nine Network Australia, PBS Television Network and most of the ITV Network Regions. The broadcast began in 1987, and has not been seen on (British) screens since 1999. The newscast was produced by ITN and broadcast from its London Bureau.

Domestic Versions

The Super Channel

"See also: The Super Channel"

"ITN World News" began life as "ITN Super Channel News", a newscast for the then-newly formed pan-European satellite channel, The Super Channel. The newscast began broadcasting in 1987, and its main broadcast was shown live at 21.00 GMT (22.00 CET). Its main presenters were John Suchet, Sue Carpenter, and David Cass. Trevor McDonald and Edward Stourton were later newscasters for the programme.

ITV Network

"See also: ITV"

In 1988, ITN began producing an hour-long newscast called "ITN Morning News", broadcast from London at 05.00 GMT and preceding "TV-AM Good Morning Britain". It was shown on the stations of the ITV Network. Part of this newscast, about half-way through the programme, included a domestic version of "Super Channel News" entitled "ITN World News". It featured the same presenters as the version shown on The Super Channel. Trevor McDonald later presented the programme before going on to become chief newscaster on "ITN News At Ten". Edward Stourton also presented occasionally. After the Gulf War, "ITN World News" was no longer shown as part of the morning newscast, and the newscast itself was halved and broadcast at 05.30 GMT, where it still resides today (albeit as "ITV Morning News").

NBC Europe

"See also: NBC Europe"

In 1993, The Super Channel was bought by American company, General Electric. The company was (and is) best known for being the owners of the National Broadcasting Company in the United States. Firstly, The Super Channel was renamed "NBC Super Channel". Secondly, many popular programmes from NBC began appearing on the channel - comedy programmes from NBC included "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno", "Late Night With Conan O'Brien", and "Saturday Night Live"; news programmes from NBC included "Dateline NBC", "The Today Show", and "NBC Nightly News With Tom Brokaw". Business and financial news was provided by CNBC and The Financial Times. And thirdly, "ITN Super Channel News" changed its name to "ITN World News" to reflect The Super Channel's takeover. News programmes from NBC were recorded (although "NBC Nightly News" was live), and so updates had to come from ITN in London. Also at this time, "ITN World News" expanded to an hour, still in its timeslot of 21.00 GMT (22.00 CET). In 1996, NBC Super Channel became NBC Europe; in 1998 NBC Europe ceased broadcasting when it didn't make it over to digital television. "ITN World News" ceased broadcasting in the United Kingdom on the day of the channel's final broadcast. During the end of its run on "NBC Europe" (1993 to 1998?), the programme's main presenters were Richard Lindley and Selina Scott. Towards it final years, its presenters were Katy Haswell and Richard Bath.

International Versions

ITN World News For Public Television

"See also: Public Broadcasting Service"

In 1998, ITN made a deal with WNET New York City for a newer version of the newscast to be broadcast from London for the Public Broadcasting Service across the United States. It made its debut on 2 November, with a new set, new music, and a new presenter - Daljit Dhaliwal. The name of the new incarnation of the broadcast was "ITN World News For Public Television". Although it made Daljit Dhaliwal a household name in the United States, the broadcast was cancelled again after nearly a year, due to a lack of funding. The newscast was replaced with a simulcast of "BBC World News", which is still shown today.

Nine Network Australia

"See also: Nine Network Australia"

From the late 1980s until the mid 90s, "ITN World News" was broadcast on some stations of the Nine Network Australia. It aired on TCN-9 Sydney, NWS-9 Adelaide, STW-9 Perth, TVT-6 Television Tasmania (later WIN Television Tasmania), WIN-31 WIN Television Canberra and RTQ-31 WIN Television Rockhampton. It was usually broadcast at either 06.00 or 06.30 AET. The "World News" was replaced with, variously, an edition of "CNN World News" or by national newscasts from Nine.
