IIRC -When Sian returned for Olympic Breakfast in 2012, her and Bill were never reunited. She was paired with Chris Hollins and Bill with Hazel Irvine.

They had a one-off reunion on the morning of the opening ceremony. See posts from here - alas none of the captures seem to have survived.

OK peeps, who's up for the official TV Forum Charabanc to the Holiday Inn Media City? Tickets available for £15...cheap as chips!

[Joking, obvs.]


Only if you bring your vast digital collection of theme music and vamps......I’ll be there!

(Joking too, obvs.)

Deal! I'll have David Lowe music piped through the coach speakers like muzak.

Anyway, we'd better get back on topic.

I’ve got the Chinese Lantern theme music (opening AND close) on my Walkman. I’ll buy some batteries. You can borrow it if you want.

Back to BBC Breakfast, I've recently returned to the fold.

Without going into detail, I've been going through some ups and downs personally this past 6 months or so and one small change I have made is to stop watching Good Morning Britain. I had tired of Breakfast a year or two ago and switched to t'other side. Whilst I did enjoy a change of style, I have realised that I feel as though the programme has made a small contribution to my recent feelings. I hadn't quite realised until now that waking up every morning to vitriolic arguments and bullying of guests and media personalities was subconsciously dragging me down and making me feel wound up in my own daily life. What with all the daily over-the-top coverage of the acrimonious fall out of Brexit as well, it was getting too much.

Last week I decided to switch back to Breakfast and, whilst it's not perfect, it is calmer and more measured. It's actually been quite refreshing to return to it after a break. It makes you realise just how precious the BBC is as a national institution. The balanced and measured service it provides to us all is absolutely vital, especially in these toxic times we live in.

Bravo, Rob. Sending you all the best across the oceans. Xxx

Agree with your presentation comments too: BBC Breakfast isn’t perfect. But it is calmer and more measured than t’other side. For me, personally, it’s the lesser of two evils at 6 and 7am. The general noise (and all that goes with it) on the other channel just doesn’t work for me in the early mornings. I appreciate this is not everyone’s view though.

In WorldLand, The Briefing is the perfect morning mix, albeit doesn’t have local and regional content.

All the best to you! The offer of the Walkman is still there......
