BBC4 News is to be relaunched at the beginning of January with a new name, new set and an increase in in-depth international reporting. The World, which will continue to be fronted by Kirsty Lang, will now include extra features on global news issues and will have the added flexibility to devote the whole programme to one major issue. BBC4 News editor Amanda Farnsworth will oversee the relaunch before moving to edit BBC1's Six O'Clock News.
