Fakty TVN (simplified to Fakty) is the flagship newscast of TVN, one of Poland's major television networks.
The programme was launched on 3 October 1997, which was also the first day of the entire TVN. It was created by two former TVP journalists, Grzegorz Miecugow and Tomasz Lis, with Lis serving as its original main presenter.
It was the first news programme in Polish television based on the North American concept of "anchor" where presenter does not simply read the text prepared by others but he or she has vital influence on the overall shape of the programme.
The programme begins with a camera shot covering the studio's videowall, on which a ticking clock is displayed. When it passes 19:00:00 sharply, the main ident begins, with a voice-over introduction of the presenter. The headlines are presented in front of the video wall. For the main segment, the presenter is seated behind his desk.
