Anyone recognise the opening shot of Stonehenge from Karl Pilkington's Moaning Of Life?



I guess the 96 break bumpers used stock footage and only a small part was shot specifically. Makes slightly more sense that they didn't rush to use them in the titles if they didn't cost as much as they looked.

In a way makes even less sense. I wonder how long in the planning the 1996 revamp actually was - presumably wasn't on the cards when Zoe began in January, though then again if that was the case makes little sense they didn't freshen up the titles then.

Talking of titles after the discussions in the Carlton thread I'm assuming the 1997 titles were 100% real.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Yes, literally breakfast items on wires (apart from the tea bags), shot against a blue screen and mostly animated using a vision mixer. The tea bags were entirely animated using a vision mixer.

Depressing to think that C4's constant reruns of King of Queens and Everybody Loves Raymond have now been running longer than The Big Breakfast - and indeed almost as long as all C4's breakfast shows combined.

It is, and whilst I'd love to see a programme like the big breakfast in the morning, most people who don't want news dominated programmes listen to radio or watch recorded programmes/on demand. For Channel 4 as long as they're getting a similar amount of viewers it keeps the advertisers happy for a much lower cost.

Because they have no choice.
