A trip down memory lane to celebrate 30 years of Breakfast Television

Tim Muffett takes a look at the first ever Breakfast Time show, which was broadcast on Monday January 17, 1983.

Nick Ross tells Tim that everyone was unsure if a mix of heavy news and lighter items would work.

With Diana Moran, the ‘Green Goddess’, exercising for the nation and Russell Grant practising astrology, the show turned out to be a hit.

The show relaunched as the ‘Breakfast News’ with Nicholas Witchell in 1989, which was more of a traditional news programme.

And in 2000, Breakfast News became ‘Breakfast’ before moving to Salford in 2012.
