The Russia-Ukraine War, which is called a “special military operation” by the Russian Federal Government, has been a very important international event attracting worldwide spotlights since February 24th 2022. British Broadcasting Corporation, a famous broadcasting company that offers service almost all over the world, conducts live news reports on the event. According to traditional communication theories, mass media has strong influence on audiences. However, during an era when media technology is evolving rapidly, the traditional media like the British Broadcasting Corporation has attempted to shift its news broadcasting platform online. The author conducted a content analysis of the British Broadcasting Corporation Live news reports of the Russia-Ukraine War during a certain time period so as to analyse topic tendency and potential influence of these news reports, and to explore some special reporting modes about the war. To be specific, four general aspects, including the change of battlefield situations, the reactions and measures carried out by the governments of other countries, the reactions of international organizations and the interviews with local people in Ukraine were included in the content analysis of BBC Live news reports. The study explored the potential influence of BBC Live news reports, including encouraging Ukrainian people and Ukrainian army, arousing sympathy of most people around the world, and even the indirect influence such as all kinds of aids.
