Peter Sissons presents the final edition of the BBC News at Nine. The programme was launched on 14th September 1970. Sissons ended the final edition with the words: “That is, or rather that was, the Nine o’Clock News. From Monday, it’s me or Michael Buerk as usual, but with the BBC Ten o’Clock News. Until then, from us all, goodnight.”
