The BBC's Breakfast Time was the UK's first early morning television show, launching on 17 January 1983 with its famous sunshine logo and cosy approach.
The programme had a homely feel with its red sofas, steaming coffee pots and main hosts Frank Bough and Selina Scott, who had friendly, relaxed chats with their audience.
The BBC's approach to breakfast TV was a mix of news and lifestyle features, with fitness guru Diana Moran (The Green Goddess) a regular guest.
The programme, which went on air two weeks ahead of ITV rival TV-am, did occasionally leave the confines of its first studios at Lime Grove in west London.
Jeremy Paxman, who went on to become Newsnight's legendary interrogator, had a stint on Breakfast Time starting in 1985.
Paxman's fellow Newsnight host Kirsty Wark also has a connection with the programme, along with the late Jill Dando and John Stapleton, now a GMTV presenter.
In 1989, the comfy sofas and lifestyle slots were replaced by the harder-edged Breakfast News, where regular newscasters sat soberly behind a desk.
The sofa and studio guests made a return in 2000 when another relaunch saw the birth of Breakfast. The format remains 25 years after the original programme launched.
25 years on - Breakfast presenters past and present broadcast a special birthday edition of the programme.
