''BBC OS'' (referred to as Outside Source when broadcast on television) is a news programme produced by the BBC; it utilises social media in the presentation of its stories. The programme is usually presented by Ros Atkins on BBC News, BBC World News and BBC World Service. ''Outside Source'' replaced a standard edition of BBC World News, which originally was an edition of ''World News Today''. In the UK it replaced the ''BBC News at Nine'' along with ''World News Today'' on Friday and weekends. Normally between 23 December and 01 January Outside Source is normally replaced by an edition of World News Today at 7 pm on BBC World News and at 9 pm on the BBC News Channel. According to the BBC: "Outside Source aims to open up the news process, enabling people to discover the latest on the stories that matter to them. An hour-long World Service Radio show is the first element of the pan-Global News format to be brought to air." The programme was launched on BBC World Service on 28 October 2013; and on BBC World News on 17 February 2014. It began being broadcast in the UK on 1 June 2015, though it has been broadcast during major stories in the past. In March 2017 the radio programme was renamed ''BBC OS''. In 2017, the radio programme was moved to 16:00 GMT to go out at the same time as the TV version. But in July, this was changed to 19:00 GMT to allow an edition of ''World News Today'' to be broadcast at 19:00 UK Time. The programme also launched on PBS on 1 January 2020 replacing ''Nightly Business Report'' with the series finale ending a 40-year run. On the 18 August 2020, the programme was moved to 18:00 GMT / 19:00 BST swapping places with the programme formerly called ''Beyond 100 Days''.https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/profiles/3GzDBRZvTCD9Vb50zndTYc0/christian-fraser It runs for 90 minutes on BBC World News and 60 minutes on BBC News Channel.
