BBC Breakfast is a national British morning television news programme
simulcast on BBC One and the BBC News channel. It is presented live from
MediaCityUK and contains a mixture of news, sport, weather, business and
feature items. The programme is broadcast seven days a week, every week
of the year, including weekends and public holidays.
Adam Bullimore is the editor. He had been the deputy editor for five years.
Alison Ford, previously the UK Editor for BBC Newsgathering, was the editor of
the programme until her death in July 2013. Her appointment followed the
departure of David Kermode to 5 News. History
Breakfast Time was the first BBC breakfast programme, with Ron Neil as
producer. It was conceived in response to the plans of the commercial
television company TV-am to introduce a breakfast television show. Breakfast
Time's first broadcast was on 17 January 1983, featuring multiple presenters:
Frank Bough, Selina Scott, Nick Ross and Russell Grant. The atmosphere of the set
was intended to encourage a relaxed informality; a set that mimicked a
living-room rather than a studio, with red leather sofas, and Bough and Ross
wearing jumpers and open-necked shirts. This allowed for an unconventional mix
of authoritative and highbrow news and informative and entertainment features
that made the show dominate the new genre and trounce the anticipated threat
by the star-name commercial TV rival. So, a senior government minister might
be subjected to intense questioning while sitting on the red sofa, to be
then included in the presentation of a food cooking demonstration. Breakfast
Time lasted 150 minutes, initially being transmitted between 6.30 am and 9
am—moving to a 6.50 am to 9.20 am slot on 18 February 1985.
A bomb detonated at 2:54 a.m. on 12 October in the Grand Hotel, Brighton,
with the purpose to kill Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her cabinet, who
were staying at the hotel for the Conservative Party conference. Nick Ross
presented Breakfast Time on his own, as live coverage came in from Brighton.
Ron Neil departed from the programme and on 10 November 1986 a more conventional
news focus was introduced featuring a news desk, presenters in smart dress and
a time-reduced programme broadcast that began at 7 am and ended any time between
8.30 am and 8.55 am. Presenters included Kirsty Wark, John Stapleton, Jeremy
Paxman and Sally Magnusson. On 2 October 1989, the programme was
renamed Breakfast News, followed a more authoritative tone with a set modelled
on the conventional desk style found with main news bulletins, and started at
6.30 am. A considerable portion of the first half hour was devoted to business
news. In January 1993, the business news coverage extended to an hour-long
programme in its own right, beginning at 6:00 am. Breakfast News started at 7:00
am. Next came the merging of the separate
programmes of BBC One and BBC News 24 into one single simulcast starting from
2 October 2000. Since April 2006, the BBC News channel
has screened rolling news coverage from 8.30 am while Breakfast continues on BBC
One until 9.15 am. In April 2008, BBC News 24 was renamed "BBC News", as part
of a £550,000 rebranding of the BBC's news output, complete with a new studio
and presentation. On 2 May 2006, Breakfast moved into
studio N6 at Television Centre with other BBC One news programmes that
required a larger set design that included walls of Barco video screens.
The original screen scenes of cirrus clouds on a blue sky were changed as a
result of viewer comments that 'it looked too cold' – their replacement was
with orange squares of the same design as those appearing in the programme's
new title sequence, which were designed to hide any joins or faults between the
screens which had previously been obvious. The screens eventually
displayed visuals needed for story content: different backgrounds, graphics
and still photographs. More importantly, the set had a generic visual style that
could be used for other programmes, such as the national news bulletins, without
much additional physical change. The programme celebrated its 20th
anniversary on 17 January 2003. On 28 January 2008, Breakfast returned
to the TC7 studios, where Breakfast Time had been based following its move from
the BBC Lime Grove Studios. On 2 March 2009, Breakfast relaunched with a new
set and studio background. The backdrop resembles that of the BBC News channel
as do the new Breakfast titles. In July 2010, the BBC announced that
Breakfast was moving to their new studios in Salford Quays. The BBC
announced that with the April 2012 move to Salford, co-presenter Sian Williams
and sports presenter Chris Hollins preferred not be included in the move to
the North of England. Williams left Breakfast on 15 March 2012, but she
continues doing other assignments with the BBC.
On 12 December 2011, the first of several presenter changes was announced.
Louise Minchin would, with the studio move to Salford, join the other main
presenters of BBC Breakfast: Bill Turnbull, Susanna Reid and Charlie
Stayt. Carol Kirkwood, on 26 March 2012, would remain in London presenting
weather. Sports presenters Mike Bushell and Sally Nugent and business presenter
Steph McGovern would locate to Salford. The first Breakfast edition from Salford
occurred on Tuesday 10 April 2012. London-based newspapers have reported
extensive criticism of the BBC move, but a decrease in audience has not occurred
with the retention of an approximate average of 1.5 million viewers.
The 2012 Summer Olympics prompted Olympic Breakfast on the morning of the
opening ceremony to temporarily broadcast from an interim studio near
the Olympic Park in Stratford. During the games, former presenters Sian
Williams and Chris Hollins also returned to lead the morning programme, in
addition to Bill Turnbull and BBC Sport presenter Hazel Irvine. The show ended
its temporary London return with broadcasting from the BBC News Channel's
studio on the morning following the closing ceremonies before rebroadcasting
from Salford the next day. On 19 March 2013, BBC Breakfast updated
its "lower thirds" to match the graphics and fonts used by the rest of BBC News
since the previous day. The clock was consequently moved to the lower right
side of the screen. On 23 July 2014, the show went on
location again, this time to Glasgow to showcase highlights from the 2014
Commonwealth Games. In the hours leading up to the opening ceremony, Carol
Kirkwood reported from Celtic Park. Format
Between 6am and 8.30am of weekdays, the programme is simulcast on the BBC News.
During the simulcast, the sports news is at 6.10am, 6.35am, 7.35am and 8.35am. In
addition, live sports bulletins are broadcast from sporting locations, such
as Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, with the presenter interviewing key sporting
figures. Business updates are presented at 6.10am, when the main business
stories from the newspapers are also discussed, and at 6.50am, 7.20am and
7.50am, either from the studio, or out on location. The United Kingdom weather
forecasting broadcast is at 15 minutes and 45 minutes past the hour throughout
the programme, either from the BBC Weather Centre in Broadcasting House, or
out on location. Short regional news, travel and weather programmes are just
before the hour and the half hour throughout the programme. Once the BBC
News Channel breaks away for its own programming at 8.30, a brief check of
the headlines, and sports are done then the show gradually shifts to reporting
lifestyle- and entertainment-oriented stories. The show occasionally ends with
a musical performance from one of the guests.
The show is abbreviated during bank holidays to just three hours but still
features regional news updates, and is completely simulcast on the BBC News
Channel. During weekends, there are no updates
from regional news bureaus. The first and/or second hour of the weekend
edition may occasionally feature abbreviated versions of the BBC's other
programmes such as Click, Reporters and the Film Review. The show is also
simulcast on BBC One and the BBC News Channel but BBC one occasionally breaks
away at 7.30 on Sundays to bring Match of the Day. The third and fourth hour
are completely live and occasionally, the last segment on Saturdays may
feature cooking. Interactive
Breakfast encourages viewer response and interaction via e-mail, Facebook and
Twitter. Video reports and interviews from the programme are made available on
the Breakfast Facebook page after transmission.
