From Monday, September 1 to Thursday, September 4 BBC World News America travels to Saint Paul to bring live news and analysis from the Republican National Convention including John McCain's nomination acceptance speech.

And providing expert analysis at the Republican National Convention, Time magazine's Mike Duffy joins Matt Frei and Katty Kay to discuss the major talking points each day from Minneapolis � Saint Paul.

As well as all the news and events, the programs will include special political features and interviews as well as the program's signature first person films that go behind the headlines to provide context and perspective on the major issues and stories dominating the conventions.

In addition to news and analysis from the conferences, BBC World News America will continue to deliver headlines and in-depth reports on major international and domestic news from BBC correspondents around the world.

Executive Producer Rome Hartman comments: "As always, BBC World News America will deliver political coverage with a difference; sharp and insightful reporting and analysis... always impartial, but never dull or wonky. Matt, Katty, Ted and Mike all know the story inside out, but also know how to tell it from the outside in."

Further coverage of the conventions will be available at bbc.com/worldnewsamerica.
