Pebble Mill at One
1970s
Pebble Mill at One was a 45 minute lunchtime chat show presented from the foyer of the BBC's Pebble Mill studios in Birmingham. The original theme was called "Down at the Mill" and was by the Pebble Mill Band. These are (we think) the original set of titles used when the show launched in 1972.

1970s
From 1974 to 1979 the programme was known simply as Pebble Mill. During the February 1974 election campaign, the lunchtime news was extended from five minutes to 15. However the bulletin still began at 12.55pm. The result, of course, was that Pebble Mill at One actually went on air at 1.10pm. The programme's name was temporarily amended in Radio Times. From September 1974 the programme's regular title was actually changed. However the normal transmission time never varied.

In September 1979 the name changed back to Pebble Mill at One and at the same time a new signature tune, "Millers Tune" was introduced. This set of titles are from 1981.

Click for larger image The very last edition of Pebble at One or so we thought! Its original run was from 1972 to 1986 but it was resurrected in 1991 and ran for a further 5 years until 1996.
