BBC News primed for refresh

One of the most popular websites in the world; BBC News; is set for a refresh in the next week or so. BBC editor Steve Hermann gives the skinny on what we can expect:

What’s new:

  • a fresh, updated design, with more space for the main stories of the day
  • better use of video and images
  • clearer and more prominent labelling and signposting of key stories, whether you are on the front page or a story page
  • a better indication of which are the most recent headlines
  • easier ways to share stories with others, for those who wish to

Some things are staying the way they are:

  • all the same content is still there: the best of the BBC’s journalism in text, audio and video
  • the latest news headlines will be as quick and comprehensive as ever
  • accuracy remains at the core of our editorial values
  • we’ve been careful to keep things simple and easy to use; you have told us how important this is
