BBC Midday News: 1976-1981

BBC Midday News started in early 1976 broadcasting for 15 minutes. It replaced a much shorter bulletin which was shown before Pebble Mill At One. During the summer, the bulletin would be broadcast as late as 1.45pm. The programme was presented by Richard Baker, Richard Whitmore or Kenneth Kendall

With thanks to Deltic1976 and Robin Carmody for providing images on this page.




In 1979 a new look appeared but kept the same music.
