A Celebration of BBC Saturday Morning Television from 1976 to 2009


This is Saturday Mornings
Saturday Mornings is a celebration of the BBC's Saturday morning television programmes that were broadcast between 1976 and 2009, and we've been here on the web in one form or other for the last 20+ years!

Whether you're old enough to remember watching Noel presenting Swap Shop or your childhood was dominated by Dick and Dom's creamy muck muck there's plenty here for everyone to discover.

Never Say Never Again...
November 2021

Yes, we know when we launched this version of Saturday Mornings back in 2016 we said it would probably be the final time we did an update to the site format, however...

It's fair to say we've had a bit of spare time on our hands for the last year or so, so coming sometime in 2022 will be a new version of the site, and this one will be a bit different in a few ways.

Other than new site navigation (we're very excited about this, but then again we're easily pleased!) this version will feature reactive formatting which means for the first time the site will be readable on pretty much any device.

Watch this space for updates and maybe a sneak preview of the work in progress...

More than Just a Load of Video Clips...
At Saturday Mornings we bring you a whole lot more than just a load of video clips. For the past 20 years we've been delving into the shows' history and tracking down the items connected with them. Here's some of the things you can find... other than the video clips.

Saturday Mornings Plus is where we take a look at some parts of the shows in greater detail, but occasionally we do allow ourselves to wander slightly off subject.

The Saturday Mornings Archive has been built up over a period of many years as we trawl the internet and other places for items related to Saturday Morning television.

Publicity Cards were issued by all programmes, so we've collected as many as we can. From Swap Shop to TMi we've got them all... almost.

It Started With... Swap Shop was broadcast in December 2006 to celebrate the then 30th anniversary of BBC Saturday Morning television. We teamed up with Unique Television to provide a sub site to first promote and then to document this very special programme.

This is Now, That Was Then...
There have been several versions of Saturday Mornings since we launched back in 2000, and from 2012 onwards we've managed to keep the old versions that have been retired available online for posterity.

You can visit the Website Timewarp page which allows you to visit the last two versions of Saturday Mornings, along with a little background information.
