Anglia Tonight

Anglia Tonight

Anglia Tonight is a regional news programme produced by ITV Anglia (formerly Anglia Television), serving the East of England and broadcast at 6pm every weeknight.

Since 1990, there have been two editions: Anglia East (Norfolk, Suffolk & Essex) and Anglia West (Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire), both broadcast from Norwich (pre-dating current practice in other ITV regions by 17 years). Both areas are covered by the same news bulletin programmes at the weekend.

Anglia News replaced Anglia Television’s About Anglia in 1990. The 6pm programme changed title to "Anglia Tonight" in 2004, although it was called "Anglia News Tonight" for a short time beforehand.

On Air

Anglia News airs on ITV1 Anglia seven days a week. ITV Anglia provides three news bulletins during GMTV. The mid-morning bulletin (often at about 11:15am) airs immediately after an ITV News Summary, during This Morning, and this update airs for around ten minutes. The lunchtime edition of the programme follows on from the ITV Lunchtime News, giving a round-up of the day in just over five minutes from 1:55pm. The evening edition of Anglia Tonight begins at 6pm and ends at 6:30pm. The late news update from Anglia follows the News at Ten, airing between 10:30pm and 10:45pm from Monday to Thursday and between 11:30pm and 11:45pm on Friday, after ITV Late News.

Anglia News airs four bulletins at the weekend - two on Saturday and two on Sunday.
