Newsround

Show Summary

This guide covers the 5 minute Newsround bulletin that airs on CBBC2 at 7.25am Monday through to Friday and the main 10 minute 5.05pm bulletin on CBBC1 from Monday to Friday. The CBBC bulletins have their own seperate guide. John Craven's Newsround started on 4th April 1972, with just two typewriters and three people based in the corner of the BBC's foreign news room. Primarily anchored by John for 17 years, on the 22nd June 1989 John hosted his last ever Newsround. Since then the main show has seen a cycle of different presenting and reporting teams, in October of 2008 the presenting team was condensed to two main hosts, Sonali Gudka (previously Breakfast Co-Anchor) and Ore Oduba, who acts as deputy. The breakfast bulletins began airing on CBBC2's breakfast show in 2003, all bulletins since the 2008 cast reshuffle are presented by Ore, if he's unavailable Sonali fills in. Reporters currently on the show are Ricky Boleto who is based in Manchester and Hayley Cutts and Leah Gooding who are based in London. The cast are credited by their main role to the show, however may appear as reporters in a later show. The show itself presents the days main headlines in a way that relates more to children. It's popularity has spawned many short-lived spin-off series and additional broadcasts on the CBBC Channel (these episodes are included within the Newsround(CBBC) TV.com guide) The set has been updated on many occasions, as has the shows theme tune and titles, the most recent has been in place since 29th September 2008.moreless

    The news they show are really interesting and the April fools jokes actually work! It could just be that 5 minutes longer otherwise it is a great show!
  • Newsround is a good childrens summary to the days top headlines. It really isn't for adults though.

    Newsround shows all the days top headlines and it is especially for kids. At the moment there are a few presenters which make the news more interesting. But there are some very cheesey jokes to make the news a bit more funnier. The show is probably aimed for 5-14 year olds. I mean if I was a child and wanted to find out wants been happening in the news then you wouldn't want to sit down with your parent and watch the 7 o'clock news or read the newspaper so I think that there is a good point to it. The presenters make it very interesting and you only have to watch for 10 mins on the proper show or just a few mins on the update shows. Also the sometimes do special shows which I find very interesting. It is a decent show for Kidsmoreless
