That montage was very heavily weighted towards the last few years wasn't it

I'm surprised they mark the anniversary of Breakfast specifically. Usually it's the January anniversary of Breakfast Time's launch.

Does Breakfast no longer include a regional bulletin at 0757?

I've also noticed since regional bulletins returned the national forecast has moved to :10 rather than :15/:17. The downside seems to be the news belt is now 10 minutes or less and today appears to cover two stories only.


Since the English regions bulletins returned the 0757 has been dropped.
A loss of around 16 mins regional news across the week.

Watching that anyone would think Breakfast had only ever come from Salford.

Probably beacause it was the 20th, hence a milestone. I'm guessing come 2022 they'll do a ten years from Salford tribute

And probably from the same washed out set that they debuted 10 years earlier

They clearly want an excuse to mark "milestone anniversaries" as often as possible, so will switch between different interpretations of when the current programme started as it suits them (e.g. 1983 start of Breakfast Time, 1989 start of Breakfast News, 2000 start of Breakfast, 2012 move to Salford).

Well I don't think they'd mark the 1989 anniversary but all the others you could understand. It'll be the same with ITV too - they'll mark 40 years of breakfast TV in 2023 (as will the BBC) I'm sure, and then 10 years of GMB - I'm assuming they get to that point - the year after.

How many sets did Breakfast have between 2000 and 2012?

I find it hard to believe that the average viewer actually gives a stuff about TV shows' anniversaries. I can't help thinking on these occasions they should bring in a cake for the staff, and spare the viewers the self-congratulatory navel-gazing.

They'll probably have two tributes in 2022 - Ten years from Salford, but also 100 years of the BBC, so celebrating since the start of Breakfast Time.

I think it depends on the show. Generally people like a bit of nostalgia and anniversaries can give shows the chance to break from their usual routine.

It's also an excuse to show dodgy haircuts and outfits
