Good Morning Campus
Genre: Event Coverage
Broadcast: 1995

Good Morning Campus was devised by Jo Hyde and ran each week day morning for the week 9 of the 1995 summer term just prior to graduations. One of the aims of the programme was to give departing members of the society a feeling that they where going out on a high note (YSTV production quality seemed to hit a low mark in the period post election night to examinations). The programme went out at an unusually early time in the morning, with a different director on each day.

Directors, were Adam Baxter (Monday), Owain Davies and Mark Hansgate, Sarah Davies (Thursday), and Jo Hyde (Friday), and the presenting team included Danette Sullivan, Chris Barker, as well as the Provost of Goodricke, lured by Andy Robinson. Graham Quince presented the weather and was often heard to be saying 'slip, slop, slap' due to the warm weather that was experienced during that week.

Features included breakfasts from around the world, paper review, weather forecasts and an exercise VT.

There are two episodes still in existence, on a VHS tape of dubious quality belonging to Sarah Davies, as well as some of the funny bits in Sarah and Adam's 1995 Review, set to the theme from The Muppet Show...

The programme is unrelated to 2005's Good Morning Campus, whose creators had no idea about the earlier programme due to the last remains of it disappearing from the archive long before! It did however follow a similar format and was broadcast almost exactly ten years later...
