How to get the forum name

I'm trying to add the forum category name to a template (specifically the recent news template for the xenporta add on).

I've tried several permutations of this code:

{xen:helper snippet, $forum.title, 50}

But no luck.

How can I get the forum title for a thread?

Yep, that returns the thread title, but I'm looking for the title of the forum the thread is in.

Looks like my original post was not clear on this.

I have updated it.

You can edit the template of the recent news and put this:

Code:
{xen:helper dump, $news}
Then you will see if the forum title is inside the var $news and is available to use.

Edit: I think I found.

Try this:

Code:
{$news.node_title}
