Good Morning Britain was TV-am's flagship breakfast television show, broadcast on weekdays from February 1983 until the franchise ended in 1992. It had many different presenters throughout its run but the most enduring pairing was Anne Diamond and Nick Owen. From a slow start, which almost led to the closure of the channel, Good Morning Britain became very successful and ultimately achieved impressive ratings. According to one presenter Mike Morris they estimated to have interviewed over 30,000-guests on the sofa throughout its run. ITV has revived the programme in 2014, with Susanna Reid, Ben Shephard, Piers Morgan and Kate Garraway as the main weekday presenters between 6am and 8.30am.
Good Morning Britain - Overview - Netflix
Good Morning Britain had a mixture of news and current affairs, weather, cartoons, music and many popular guests of the time. It also featured a popular exercise section, hosted in the early days by Michael Van Straten and Jackie Genova, and then more famously by “Mad Lizzie” Webb. The show displayed a famous analogue-style clock on the bottom-right of the screen. The news was provided in-house by TV-am but following its loss of the licence the news provision was contracted out to Sky News. In its heyday, the programme would feature large outside broadcasts throughout the European winter/Australian summer from Bondi Beach in Australia, renaming the show G'Day Britain. Other presenters of the show included Chris Tarrant, Anneka Rice, Richard Keys, Kathy Tayler, Lorraine Kelly, Jayne Irving, Dynasty star Gordon Thomson and initially, David Frost, Anna Ford, Michael Parkinson and Angela Rippon.
