BBC Six O’Clock News

In spite of the relaunch, Sixty Minutes failed to pick up so the BBC called it a day in August 1984. Taking its place was The Six O'Clock News, which has been a staple ever since. Sue Lawley became the lead news reader. This famous edition from October 1984 revealed the full horror of the famine in Ethiopia, which led to the formation of Band Aid by Bob Geldof.
