Huw Edwards anchors Britain’s most popular TV news bulletin, BBC One’s Ten O’Clock News. He also leads BBC coverage of major national stories and events, from state visits to local and national elections, crises to celebrations.

Originally a Parliamentary Correspondent, Huw has since won a BAFTA award, made a cameo appearance in the Bond movie Skyfall and commented on Barack Obama’s inauguration from a Washington rooftop. He has interviewed Presidents, Prime Ministers and major figures in all areas of public life.

Huw combines newsroom duties with presenting major national and state events, from Trooping the Colour to The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, royal weddings to the spectacular opening ceremony at the London Olympics, watched by a record 27 million viewers in the UK along. He has filmed The History of Wales and made documentaries on Gladstone and Mozart, among many others, and regularly visits schools as ambassador for the BBC Young Reporter project.
