ABC Current Affairs[edit]

The ABC produces many current affairs programmes, including 7.30 and Lateline. These programmes often use resources or reports from one another. For instance, an Asia-Pacific-based report from the week's Foreign Correspondent will be edited for use during that same week's Asia-Pacific Focus programme.

News reports from ABC News are also edited, often with new material added on, for use on that night's Lateline.

The ABC's Current Affairs department has won a number of awards over the years.
