The programme went through three main visual changes. The initial look lasted from launch in 1989 to 1993. The 1993 revamp saw the programme presented from the same set as the One, Six and Nine O'Clock News bulletins. A further and final revamp took place in 1997 when 'BBC' was shorn from its title, and on-screen it became known as simply Breakfast News. It was during this final period that the tone began to shift, with the return of a sofa set, alongside more features, and more interaction between the presenting team.
Business Breakfast was a daily Business news programme which aired between 6am and 7am, directly preceding Breakfast News. Initially the programme aired as part of Breakfast News broadcasting between 6.34am and 6.55am but at the start of 1993 it became a programme in its own right, running from 6am until 7am.
Breakfast News Extra
Breakfast News Extra launched in early 1996, as an attempt to compete against Lorraine Kelly on GMTV. The programme was presented from the Breakfast News office, on a blue sofa, and hosted by Juliet Morris. It was short-lived, and was axed in the summer of 1997. By this stage the main BBC Breakfast News had undergone a dramatic visual revamp with a new studio set which included sofas alongside the main presentation desk.
