The news round-up programme is different from a bulletin in that it may use older stories and also longer versions of stories.

Content and style

Older stories means by hours, not days. A news programme at, say, 6 p.m. may well include anything from that day’s events that is worth having and is still current or can be adapted to be current. Many listeners will have heard nothing since they left for work at 8.15 a.m.
