Asked this on page xyz of the old BBC News thread but never got answered - during the virtual era Breakfast News were the full titles played at *30, or were shorter titles used?

Thanks

From memory, the full titles were played at *.30, after the regional news (if that's how it was done). I didn't watch much of Breakfast News, I usually used to turn over for the regional news, and I always remember a long tune being played after it, featuring the kite, businessmen/women etc.

Hope that helps! As I said, it is from memory, so maybe someone who watched it a bit more may be able to confirm this!

The kite titles were post-virtual era for Breakfast, although the 1, 6 and 9 remained in the virtual set.

This is true.

In the VIRTUAL era (where Breakfast News shared the set with the 1, 6 and 9) shorter titles were played on the half hour if I remember correctly. In the incarnation of Breakfast News BETWEEN the virtual era and the Breakfast era they played the full titles at the bottom of the hour.

Again, if I remember correctly!

Thanks to all who replied. Does anyone have the shorter titles used in the virtual era?

Thanks again.
