Newsnight is the BBC's flagship news programme and runs on BBC2 five nights a week. Its format, with a limited number of items covered in each show, allows an in-depth analytical approach to news stories, with a particular emphasis on political and economic affairs. The show largely eschews the "human-interest" stories favoured by many news programmes.
