George Alagiah (Chair) is the presenter of the BBC Six O'Clock News. He first started on the programme in January 2003. George also presents World News Today on BBC World News, the BBC's international news channel.
In a new BBC series, 'The Future of Food', George investigates the growing global food crisis that could affect the planet in the years ahead, discovering what is wrong with people's diets, and uncovers that the UK imports an average of 3000 litres of 'virtual water' per capita every day.
Before going behind the studio desk, George Alagiah was one of the BBC's leading foreign correspondents, recognised throughout the industry for his reporting on some of the most significant events of the last decade.
Highlights of his reporting and presenting from abroad include live news programmes from the South Africa/Zimbabwe border, from Sri Lanka following the Asian tsunami, from New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and from Pakistan following the south Asian earthquake.back to top »
