This is
A Celebration BBC Saturday Morning Television from 1976 to 2009


Hello...
Hello, this is Saturday Mornings, our celebration of BBC Saturday morning television from 1976 to 2009.

Since October 2000 we've been gathering information, media clips and items to try and make the most complete website of its kind.

Have a look around and see what memories are stirred, whether you're old enough (like us!) to remember Swap Shop or your childhood was defined by Dick and Dom there's something for everyone.

Tweaks and Changes for 2018
A server glitch had been affecting the site since the middle of 2017 causing page requests to stop at random for a period of time, unfortunately something our hosting provider just couldn't work out how to fix. Fortunately, a swap over to HTTPS for the site has resolved the issue and things should now work endlessly. This also fixes the newer of the two archive site, so that's back online too!

Another change relates to the 'It Started With... Swap Shop' content. As the original subsite was first online back in 2006 things are starting to catch up with the media formats used there. This part of the site was the only place to still see 'Flash' video in use with the rest of Saturday Mornings using MP4 format. As we like to leave the ISWSS site as it was originally published in 2006, we've made a MP4 version of the media available through the main Swap Shop section.

Not Just a Load of Video Clips...
At Saturday Mornings we've always tried to offer more than other sites by bringing you a whole lot more than just a load of video clips. 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 - the signed photos - 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.

Gone but not Forgotten...
The last two Saturday Mornings websites served us well, so rather than remove them we've archived them.
