Breakfast TV – how it nearly failed
Being a breakfast TV pioneer. From reading out bingo numbers to hobnobbing with Hollywood, witnessing the fall of the Berlin Wall and exchanging fashion tips with Margaret Thatcher!
The gutsy women who’ve fought to change our world. Women who’ve turned themselves from “ordinary” into absolutely extraordinary, and to whom we all owe a profound debt.
She is a well known health campaigner for education on Cot Death and is the Anniversary Patron of FSIDS; an Ambassador for Action On Hearing Loss: RNID; and is Patron of the National Obesity Forum.

She pioneered breakfast TV in the early 80s, anchoring TVam and interviewing global leaders, celebrities and top politicians in locations as varied as Sydney Harbour during the Australian Bicentennial, the Brandenburg Gate during the fall of the Berlin Wall, Bosnia, Hollywood and No 10 Downing St. She started daytime TV with the BBC with “Good Morning With Anne and Nick” and is the author of many books, both fact and fiction whilst being a busy Mum of four boys. Anne is a classically trained pianist, flautist and singer.
Anne’s TV career is well known, but her radio credentials are also considerable. She has been the anchor of many high profile breakfast shows – including 6 years presenting The Anne Diamond Show for 8 years on BBC Radio Berkshire; 4 years with LBC, and 2 years on BBC Radio Oxford.
