Just found this random clip of an interview on Breakfast dated from 2004. I notice the programme finished at 9:30. Did Breakfast use to air later than 9:15 in those days? It's dated as 23rd April which was a Friday so it wasn't a weekend edition and with it being April i can't think of any special reason to the programme being extended.

Although there are other instances in previous years and sometimes Breakfast finished at 9am. In this case Kilroy had finished earlier in the year and there were no LIVE morning topical programmes at 10am.
My contribution is small but you are welcome.

Breakfast did run until 9:30 at that point, as shown by a BBC One schedule from that day. BBC Genome seems to suggest that from Monday 26 January 2004, the first weekday after Kilroy finished, Breakfast was extended to finish at 9:30; however, this only lasted until Monday 5 July 2004, when Breakfast moved to finish at 9:15. Of course, when Kilroy was still running, Breakfast used to finish at 9am.

I suppose the payback for Louise getting a month off to indulge in her sporting activities in South America is to sacrifice her Christmas and New Year. Sad

Yes, I'm sure it would be the same for most people. I wonder how the emergency services survive? Rolling Eyes

I wasn't aware that TV presentation was similar to providing an emergency response service, or anything remotely similar.


I was simply pointing out that Louise seems to have copped for the unpopular shifts over Xmas/New Year. In the last few years Naga has done those. It was just a comment that perhaps it was a trade-off for taking a month out. Nothing more than that, and certainly not a comment about people who provide essential services 24/7. Shocked

Most people DON'T work over Christmas/New Year.
