BBC News : 2008 Titles
This look for the BBC's news output was launched in 2008 and, at that point, the corporation's UK rolling-news service 'News 24' was renamed 'BBC News Channel'. The new look unified the channel with the 'BBC World News' channel, the bulletins on the BBC's UK channels (though BBC Parliament was to change a year later in April 2009) and the graphics of the BBC News web site.
These refreshed BBC Breakfast titles were in use from March 2009 until the beginning of April 2012.
On Tuesday 10th April 2012, the BBC relocated its breakfast programme to the new Media City in Salford. At the same time it upgraded the programme to high-definition and took the oportunity to refresh the set and graphics - as well as the titles. You may notice that Salford is included in the cat's cradle of place names that is a feature of BBC news programme titles.
For the London 2012 Olympic Games, all of the main news broadcasts moved to special studios in the East London Olympic Park. BBC Breakfast is the only programme to acknowledge the BBC being the Olympic Broadcaster in these special titles.

BBC One's main bulletins of the day, at 1pm, 6pm and 10pm, are simulcast on the BBC News channel - these are the programmes' titles. For the two weeks of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the national news was broadcast from the Olympic Park and so made use of the high-definition facilities, beginning on Thursday 26th July.
'World News Today' from BBC World News is broadcast in the UK on BBC Four and the BBC News channel. Its aim is 'to explore the day's events from a global perspective'.
Focussing on Asia and the business markets, 'Newsday' is an international news programme broadcast on the hour over night in the UK on the BBC News Channel. As a simultaneous broadcast on BBC World News, it acts as Asia's morning programme and America's late news.
'World News America' was originally produced for the BBC America and BBC World News channels from October 2007, but since March 2011 it has ceased on BBC America and is now broadcast by PBS stations.
From 24th July 2012, BBC FOUR's 'World News' will be broadcast from a studio at the Olympic Park in London, and has taken on the title 'World News London Live'.
