Good Morning Britain

Show Summary

Good Morning Britain first appeared on our screens on February 1st 1983 as part of the UK's first commercial breakfast television station TV-am. Launched by the 'Famous Five' ( David Frost, Michael Parkinson, Robert Kee, Angela Rippon and Anna Ford who was a late replacement for Esther Rantzen who was pregnant )in a blaze of publicity GMB soon became a ratings disaster with the BBC's newly launched Breakfast Time with Frank Bough and Selina Scott becoming the most popular breakfast choice with viewers and critics. Not long after GMB began the axe was wielded, Angela Rippon and Anna Ford were sacked for speaking out against the departure of the mission to explain chairman Peter Jay, Robert Kee was dropped, David Frost (Breakfast with Frost) moved to Sundays and Michael Parkinson teamed up with his wife for a Saturday programme. Nick Owen was promoted from sports reporter to main presenter along side a recently hired Anne Diamond from BBC news. Anne and Nick had worked together at ATV/Central and were an immediate success and welcomed to nation to sofa TV!
