While one will focus on the South-East Asian regions such as Singapore, the other will offer news on places in South Asia such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal.

The broadcasters/presenters for the Asia Today section will be people from Asia. BBC World is in the process of identifying local faces for the programme.
