BBC Breakfast hosts Sally Nugent and Jon Kay have shared their memories of watching the first episode of the show’s predecessor 40 years ago. Tuesday morning’s episode of BBC Breakfast marks the 40th anniversary of the programme – which launched as Breakfast Time on January 17 1983. When it first aired, Breakfast Time was revolutionary, mixing hard news with showbusiness, gossip, health and even a daily astrology segment. Tuesday’s show also saw a return of the Breakfast Time on-screen analogue clock.Special guests included former weatherman Francis Wilson and the so-called “Green Goddess” – health and fitness guru Diana Moran.
