This Morning was also a blatant rip-off of Pebble Mill at One with added phone ins.

How was it? The two programmes aren't alike. Pebble Mill at One was primarily a chat show, it had an audience, multiple presenters. By the time This Morning started it was all interviews

This Morning when it started didn't have that many interviews but did have a lot of filmed reports (from various regions), no audience and of course just two presenters and a team of experts. Iirc a lot of it was classed as adult education

The two were very different

The original Pebble Mill at One was not a chat show but a magazine programme, with many of the items similar to This Morning: film reports, experts, etc. It was axed in 1986 when the BBC started a full daytime schedule. In 1987 it returned as Daytime Live as the BBC realised it had made a mistake.

Daytime Live from the Pebble Mill foyer morphed into Scene Today and then for the last few series when Good Morning With Anne and Nick began and moved from the Pebble Mill foyer into Studio A. The last few years as Pebble Mill was indeed a chat show in the style of Wogan.

Nice to see This Morning acknowledge the 60th anniversary of Television Centre at the end of the show this morning.

GMB's competition segments with Andi Peters had quite a few mentions about Television Centre throughout today's show.
"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.

Stay tuned . . .

It is strange to think when Television Centre opened in 1960, it would be totally unthinkable that any ITV production would ever be made in those studios. How times have changed, where now in June 2020, the majority of production work at Television Centre now is for ITV daytime shows, amounting to 7.5 hours a day of ITV shows coming from what was the BBC Television Centre.

Definitely strange, but ironically a relief. When the BBC initially left, it looked highly likely the complex would mainly be sucked in by the property market, and whilst TV would be made there it could have ended up being few and far between with production companies coming in for short stays during filming. With ITV now broadcasting so many live hours regularly, it's managed to maintain its status as an important base for British TV.

I do know there was a lot of worry about Studio TC2, with BBC Studioworks wondering if such a small studio would be booked a lot by productions, and so ITV Daytime coming in and having Lorraine and Loose Women there, along with Peston really helped them.

Yeah, from people I've spoken to there was an element of concern that the only regular booking that would end up in there would be Strictly: It Takes Two , and the rest of the time there would not be very much at all.

Yes, that's been causing the usual tabloids to speculate without merit that Phil and Holly will quit and a black presenter will replace at least one of them.

That’s a shame, whilst editor of the programme Martin has helped the programme to have a newsier side in recent years (that has definitely helped in recent times) whilst also continuing the lifestyle, home, emotion and bizarre items that they have always been known for. It’s a nice balance across the programme currently, hopefully the next editor will be somebody brought up through the ranks to continue the good work.
