Good morning from Central!

For a little bit more than a decade, the 9.25am slot on Britain's main commercial network was pretty much guaranteed to be filled with one glorified parlour game or another. Starting on 7 September 1987, when ITV managed to palm off its schools' programmes onto Channel 4, the slot was the natural home for cheap 'n' cheerful tat until 20 March 1998, when a no less cheap, and even more tacky, alternative was found in the form of US-style "discussion" shows fronted by Vanessa Feltz, Trisha Goddard and (later) Jeremy Kyle.

There now follows a list of the shows which filled this nearly-hallowed slot. Dates are of course series start dates. Weeks do not necessarily add up to 52 as the game show slot would usually be replaced with cartoons during the school summer holidays and would also take two or three weeks' break over christmas and new year.
