It is also currently aired on the UK's domestic BBC News and BBC One channel 3 times daily in the early hours of the morning as part of the Newsday programme.
It is broadcast from the BBC's Singapore bureau which is in the central business district of Singapore. The main presenters are Rico Hizon (Sunday-Wednesday) and Sharanjit Leyl (Thursday) and is usually presented by that day's Newsday presenter.
