This is a good way of GMB profiling their news coverage. The round up works well at 6am, the stories are covered in depth without bias or opinion and the regional news aired bang on 6:15.

The top of the hour looked very nice as do the sweeping shots of the studio and the multiple presentation points.

I'm in the minority but I don't like the 6am opener at all it feels very stilted with the changes of music and voice over order. The date looks like something done on PowerPoint. I always liked the transition from the logo into the studio which is gone but its nice to see Charlotte get to do more than 2 minute summaries twice an hour and people actually get news at 6am instead of 20 mins of Piers ranting which we can look forward to from 6:30am

From itv…...This is Good Morning Britain...With Charlotte Hawkins...…...Live from Television Centre. to me that just doesn't sound right with so many pauses. the Television Centre bit at the end sounds out of place

The new opener just doesn't have the same fanfare that the previous one had. the music built up nicely to the transition into the studio now it just wipes on and those notes are wasted with a sweeping camera shot instead

Nice use of multiple presentation points

I also thought they were going to run out of the itv ident at 6am it seemed to last forever and faded to black

I am a fan.of the new music, but can't help but feel like the ITV ident with the fanfare is a bit unnecessary now


True but it’s been a long lasting element of the show for almost six years now.


Piers' ranting at 6am has been a long lasting element of the show for the last 4 years but that doesn't stop them changing it up.

We get a network ident, the ITV fanfare and ITV logo during the titles... all of that within 7 seconds. It's a tad over-kill. I'm not saying I don't like the fanfare, but it's out of place
