The One Show

Last updated on 20 October 2017

The One Show is a BBC Television magazine and chat show programme. Broadcast live on BBC One weeknights at 7:00pm, it features topical stories and studio guests.[1] It is currently co-hosted by Alex Jones alongside Matt Baker (Mondays to Thursdays) and a guest host on Fridays. Various reporters also assist with subject-specific presenting, both in the studio and on location, or through filmed segments. Originally produced in Birmingham and then in BBC's Media Village in White City, London, since 2014 the studio is in Broadcasting House, the BBC's headquarters in London.

Launched with a pilot series in 2006, leading to a full series from 2007, it has had various previous permanent and temporary hosts; the partnership of Jones and Baker began in 2011, with Chris Evans serving as the first Fridays only host from 2010 until 2015. Prior to the introduction of Evans, the longest presenting partnership was Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley from 2007 to 2010. Their easy and approachable on-screen chemistry is credited with boosting ratings after an unpromising start, establishing the show as a popular staple of British viewing.[2]

The programme is usually 30 minutes long, although it is occasionally extended to an hour. It runs all year round, apart from a two-week break at Christmas and a four-week summer holiday, with the summer slot filled with a highlights show, The One Show: Best of British, presented by Matt Allwright and Lucy Siegle.

Launching the full series represented a major financial commitment for the BBC and was seen by them as a first test of a wide-ranging restructuring of the BBC's production arm into a more flexible and creative organisation, with the show seen as potential platform for piloting other programme ideas.[3]

Format

As a topical magazine programme, The One Show covers a variety of stories, ranging from the light hearted humour to serious issues or tragic current events. The broadcast features a mix of in-studio presenting, outside live broadcasting, and pre-recorded segments. Reporters and other experts are included to provide contributions on various topics, both in the studio and as part of segments. Special guests are usually introduced at the top of the show, and remain throughout, often being encouraged to interact with it in various ways, as opposed to simply answering questions.

Inside the studio, videotaping is done in front of a small standing audience, and focuses on two sofas (one for the two presenters, one for guests and contributors) arranged around a coffee table, often serving a practical use, i.e. during food tasting. Use of the forecourt of Broadcasting House for outside live broadcasts is common, allowing for a larger audience and/or a bigger stage for a performance or demonstration.

The show will often take an active part in events such as Comic Relief/Sport Relief and Children In Need. Cross-promotion of other BBC shows is common, although under BBC rules the show cannot give the BBC preferential coverage.

History

The One Show was initially commissioned for a four-week trial run. It was broadcast on weeknights at 6:55 pm between 14 August and 8 September 2006. The programme was billed as a topical magazine show that was to showcase stories of interest from around the United Kingdom. The trial was hosted by Adrian Chiles and Nadia Sawalha, featuring reports from a variety of people across the UK. The show was intended to be an updated version of the BBC news magazine show Nationwide (1969–83).[4]

After favourable viewing figures for the pilot, the show returned for a full series after being revamped on 9 July 2007.[2][5] Team members were Adrian Chiles, studio presenter, Hardeep Singh Kohli, head roving reporter, and 13 other reporters or contributors.[6] A number of changes were made to the format. The show was moved from Birmingham to London. Sawalha was replaced by Myleene Klass.[7] Klass then left in August to give birth to her first child, and was replaced by Christine Bleakley.[8] The line-up was completed by the addition of a new team of reporters.[5] The show replaced Real Story,[9] and Holiday.[10]

On 18 March 2009, the show aired for the 400th episode, which was an hour long instead of the usual 30 minutes. From September 2009, The One Show included a 60-minute episode every week, after successfully trying the format in May 2009.[11] The hour-long format continued until December 2009 and was revived in April 2011.

On 13 April 2010, it was announced the show was being revamped with an hour long Friday episode, to be hosted by Chris Evans.[12] He was not due to start until after the summer break, but prior to this, both Chiles and Bleakley departed the show. Chiles left first, being announced on 19 April, his last appearance being 30 April.[13] His replacement was announced as Jason Manford on 26 May, to begin in July.[14] Bleakley continued alongside stand-ins until the last show before the break, on 10 June 2010,[15] with her departure confirmed during the break, on 8 July.[16] The BBC had also confirmed that following the break, The One Show would be broadcast in high-definition, with the set updated to HD standards.

The show returned on 12 July with stand-in presenters.[16] On 26 July, S4C presenter Alex Jones was announced as the new female co-host.[17] The new lineup of Jones and Manford on Monday to Thursday, and Jones and Evans on Friday, did not debut until the week beginning 16 August,[18] Evans' first show being Friday 20 August.[19]

On Friday 19 November, it was announced Manford was resigning,[20] his last show having been Wednesday as Evans had presented the end of week episode on Thursday due to the Children in Need telethon being on Friday.[21] Filling in, Jones was joined by guest presenters including Matt Baker, Alexander Armstrong and Matt Allwright on Monday to Thursday, with Evans also presenting extra episodes on occasion.

The show began broadcasting from New Broadcasting House on 6 January 2014[22] with revamped opening title sequence graphics. The opening sequence is also enhanced for the run-up to Christmas each year with extra vocals and visual sparkle.

On 25 January 2011, Matt Baker was announced as Manford's replacement.[23] On 19 June 2015 it was announced Evans would be leaving,[24] his last show being 10 July 2015.[25] Following the departure of Evans, the Friday show has been presented by Jones alongside various guest presenters, the first being Patrick Keilty (on 17 July).[26]

On 1 February 2016, the show broadcast an extended 1-hour tribute to TV and radio host Sir Terry Wogan, who had died the previous day.[27] This format was repeated (albeit for the usual 30-minute duration) on 31 March 2016 as a tribute to comedian Ronnie Corbett who had died earlier in the day.[28]

On 17 May 2016, the show broadcast a 25-minute special EastEnders: Last Orders special to make an end of an era of character, Peggy Mitchell, who was to be leaving the soap for the final time; the show was live from the square with cast members talking about Peggy and the show itself.

On 6 January 2017, Jones presented her last show before going on maternity leave; guest presenters Angela Scanlon and Michelle Ackerley began to take over for Jones effective 9 January. Jones called into the show on 26 January to announce that she had given birth to a baby boy.

Production

The pilot show was transmitted from a temporary studio built at The Mailbox complex in Birmingham. It was produced by BBC Birmingham, with production input from various BBC regions. When The One Show returned for a full series, it was moved to BBC Media Village in White City, London, in 2007. It moved again to Broadcasting House in January 2014.[2]

On 23 February 2011, the fire alarm at the BBC White City studios went off, causing the programme to be taken off air and the remainder of the show was replaced with a recording of Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers.[29]

Ratings

The show attracts on average a daily audience of 5 million viewers.[30] It received its lowest ever audience on Friday 24 June 2011, with just 1.92 million tuning in. The reason for this unusually low figure was because the show was unexpectedly moved to BBC Two after a Wimbledon match overran.[31] The trend to a Friday ratings slump has coincided with Evans' being handed the role of co-host for the pre-weekend edition since early 2011. The show has shed 2 million viewers for the Friday edition since Evans joined the programme.[32]

The show reached a 12-month-high audience on 18 January 2013 of 5.83 million viewers.[33]

Controversies

Carol Thatcher

Carol Thatcher did not have her short term contract as a One Show roving reporter renewed after the BBC refused to accept her apology following an allegedly racist comment made in January 2009 following filming. It was made during a private conversation between her, presenter Adrian Chiles and guest, comedian Jo Brand, but the comment was subsequently reported to BBC staff. Thatcher argued that the comment had been meant in jest, and that she considered the way the incident had been handled to be a breach of trust, for which she expected an apology from the BBC.[98]

Dog trainer

Screen grab of Roxy on The One Show

According to the Daily Mail, the BBC received hundreds of complaints over the methods of a dog trainer featured several times on the show in September 2011, after he appeared to be exclusively using confrontational techniques in an attempt to fix a problem of food guarding in a Jack Russell Terrier called Roxy. Amid conflicting accounts about how he came to be booked for the show and what qualifications or experience he had, the show stated they had no plans to repeat the feature, having previously attempted to address complaints with clips of the trainer using other techniques. The charity RSPCA investigated several complaints over the segment.[99][100]

Jeremy Clarkson

On 30 November 2011, over 21,000 complaints were received because Jeremy Clarkson made two allegedly offensive comments on the show, one in relation to the recent public sector strikes, and another on suicide. The One Show apologised for the suicide comment. The incident registered 763 complaints to regulator OFCOM, the third highest recorded in 2011.[101]

Jimmy Carr

Two jokes told by comedian Jimmy Carr on 4 November 2011 episode were referred to regulator OFCOM for investigation regarding their potentially discriminatory nature.[102] The jokes were found to be in breach of their broadcasting code, leading the BBC to alter its existing arrangements for ensuring guests do not swear or use offensive language, to also explicitly discourage jokes made at the expense of minorities.[103]

Paul O'Grady

The BBC received complaints that while being interviewed in January 2014 about the issue of benefit reform, the Labour Party supporter and television presenter Paul O'Grady was not adequately challenged on his views, described as forthright in their condemnation of the Channel 4 documentary, Benefits Street. The BBC responded by arguing that a variety of opinions had been heard, and that balance need not be addressed simply through a single programme.[104]

Rita Ora

Singer Rita Ora generated hundreds of complaints to the BBC over her choice of clothing for a 5 January 2015 appearance on the show, in which she wore a trouser suit with nothing underneath the jacket, the fit of which exposed her full cleavage. The BBC defended her clothing as being broadly in line with most viewers' expectations of a pop star's choice of attire, while also making clear it would have requested a more modest outfit had she consulted with them first.[105]

Linking between programmes

Usually, the show would finish and link into regular trailers and continuity announcements. However, on some occasions such as EastEnders' "Who Killed Lucy Beale?" finale and EastEnders Peggy's last Episode and Children in Need, they would link between programmes due to the fact they have a countdown and to ensure a smoother transition.
