I saw a trailer today for "Afternoon Live" on the BBC News Channel, and the music used on it was used for a long gone, and forgotten show on BBC1, "The Big Country Quest". It was shown the summer after Good Morning with Anne and Nick was axed, and Nick Owen was the host.
Anne and Nick's reign of terror was still continuing when The Big Country Quest was on, it was in the summer of 1994. That was quite an interesting summer on BBC1 because the previous year there had been virtually no new programmes in the summer because there'd been an accounting cock-up so budgets were extremely squeezed and BBC1 had to show virtually non-stop repeats in primetime, and they got a lot of complaints. So I think in 1994, Alan Yentob decided that BBC1 needed new programmes, any new programmes, in the summer, so quite a lot of slight programmes that in other years wouldn't have got anywhere near primetime were given very prominent slots.
I'm sure The Big Country Quest was destined for daytimes before being presaged into primetime service. That summer they also promoted A Word In Your Ear, the Gordon Burns quiz, from daytime to teatime, while Bygones, the nostalgia panel show hosted by Danny Baker, was shown at 7pm even though it was brilliantly esoteric and was almost certainly intended for a post-watershed slot. Really anything went that summer, such a bizarre selection of programmes.
