FROM THE ARCHIVE OF: Dave Baldwin
Channel 4’s first foray into breakfast television. The programme was produced by ITN in conjunction with various other production companies.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME: the opening titles and welcome from the presenter.
We then have a summary of the main news stories.
Bill Bingham then brings us a detailed UK weather forecast.
Bill then goes on to give us a quick update on the travel situation – and then lets us know what’s coming up this hour on the programme. He then introduces Countdown Masters. We then see the opening of that programme.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME: we’re 18 minutes into the first programme – and we have some technical issues going to the next item – the business news.
We do eventually get there after an unplanned review of the papers.
Dermot Murnaghan presents the business news.
