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.
