The weather and business updates were generally presented from the screen away from the main desk, unless they preceded each other. Sports updates were presented from the BBC Sport Centre at MediaCityUK, Salford. From 30 June 2014, the programme aired an extended Weather for the Week Ahead at 9.55 p.m. This looked at the weather, generally over the British Isles, over the next seven days.

On Fridays from 9:45 p.m., the programme Newswatch used to air. This was moved to a slightly earlier timeslot, 9.30 p.m.-9.45 p.m., and now airs on Friday evenings generally at 8.45 p.m., with overnight repeats on Friday nights/Saturday mornings and during the BBC Breakfast programme on Saturday morning, simulcast on BBC One. Newswatch features viewer opinions and criticisms on how BBC News has covered news events during the week. On Friday night, a repeat of The Film Review follows. It is presented by the anchor of the BBC News at Five and a film critic, usually Mark Kermode, from the Studio C (BBC World News' main studio) with the background and lighting changed to resemble a cinema effect. It features reviews of all the week's main releases.
