The Daily Mirror today reports that ITV is set to launch a Panorama style “hard hitting” investigative show, which will be the first on the channel since 1999.
Here’s what the paper has to say…
Starting on Sunday nights this autumn, Exposure will bring together a range of subjects – including foreign and domestic topics, human stories and exclusives.
Production of the Panorama-style films has begun but because some reporters are undercover, details of each topic will be kept under wraps.
ITV boss Peter Fincham said: “It will be investigative current affairs of a sort that has been an ITV tradition.”
Ian Squires, ITV controller of current affairs and news, said: “We aim to shed light on important subjects, from the world stage to very human and emotional stories, within individual and narrative-led hour-long films.”
World In Action was ITV’s last investigative current affairs show. It was replaced in 1999 by Tonight, which will continue.
