1954: BBC launches daily TV news
The BBC has broadcast its first daily television news programme.
The 20-minute bulletin was read by Richard Baker and was introduced as an "Illustrated summary of the news... Followed by the latest film of events and happenings at home and abroad."

Annoying, biased etc. but still the first choice for television news in the UK.

You missed anti-Christian from the list. But nevermind, most Brits know that anyway.
