East was the Asian current affairs series, which went out in the spring/summer during the 1990s on BBC2, whilst Network East, was transmitted in the winter.

Here is the Radio Times copy from the first episode of the 1996 series, transmitted on 3rd April, courtesy of the BBC Genome project:

“Return of the series viewing current events from an Asian perspective. Last among Equals Veteran broadcaster Mark Tully reports on the exploitation, violence and even murder to have struck the second-class Christians of India. As the Christian world prepares to celebrate Easter, the Indian caste system – contravening the Christian teaching that discrimination constitutes sin – condemns millions of Christ’s followers to worship, live and even be buried separately from their high-caste brethren.
Producers Yugesh and Sunandan Wallia; Series producer Mike Finlason” http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/4d382bf111844264bf42f8f3d0019731

Dharmesh Rajput: ‘East was the current affairs series that ran in the summer at the same time as Network East ran in the Autumn / Winter. East had different presenters depending on the documentary – a whole variety of people were used, normally chosen appropriately for the subject matter. Names such as Sankha Guha, Mark Tully, Martin Bashir, Rajesh Mirchandani, Mina Anwar, Meera Syal, John Inverdale to name a few that I can remember of the top of my head.’
