Daybreak (1983 TV series)
Daybreak was an early morning news programme on the former United Kingdom breakfast station TV-am. It ran from 06:00 to 07:00 with an emphasis on news stories. The first edition was broadcast on the TV-am launch date of 1 February 1983. Daybreak was presented by Robert Kee and Angela Rippon who both took turns in presenting. As TV-am's viewing figures fell after its launch, a major shake up took place.
Daybreak was then cut to only 15 minutes, as well as moving to a green screen studio. Daybreak was axed from Monday 23 May 1983.
