Peston is the flagship political discussion programme on British television network ITV, usually recorded live on Wednesday evenings at 9 pm. It is broadcast live on Twitter (the first terrestrial UK programme to do so) and then played out after the News at Ten at 10.45pm (usually later on STV). It was announced on 5 June 2018 that the show would launch in the autumn of that year as a continuation of Peston on Sunday.[2] The programme is presented by Robert Peston, the Political Editor of ITV News, and features a combination of interviews with politicians and public figures alongside analysis of the major news events of the week.

Format[edit]

According to ITV, Peston intends to "provide viewers with a fresh, intelligent and lively perspective on the big matters of the day."[3] Political and cultural guests join Robert Peston in the studio or remotely for interviews, with analysis from Anushka Asthana and 'Screeny', the show's large touchscreen which also features social media interaction.

The show launched on 26 September 2018 with its own emoji on Twitter promoting the launch. The emoji appears when any user tweets “ #Peston. “ [4]
