ITN First Report
1974
ITN First Report - with Robert Kee. The first edition was at 12.40pm on 16th October 1972. Kee was the original host, later to join the (in)famous five, who were to launch TV-am in 1983. It seems hard to imagine in these times of 24hr news channels that this was the first report of the day... In 1974 the programme was lengthened from 20 minutes to 25 minutes and moved to 1.00pm.

The Lunchtime News had it's corporate makeover in line with othe ITN Bulletins, designed by Lambie Nairn. I think News at 10 had an influence here!
