Parkinson
1971
Michael Parkinson is undoubtedly considered by many to be the king of chat show hosts. Parkinson ran from 1971 to 1982 and then returned to our screens in 1998. This programme was originally transmitted in 1971. This recording is a repeat from 1983 shown as a tribute shortly after David Niven's death on 29th July 1983.

Yorkshire TV came to the rescue with what I must say was an original idea, a chat show. Well fancy that!

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.

1977
Click for larger image 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.
