On 6 September, every weekday from 6am to 8.30am, Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley are reunited for ITV1’s new look breakfast show Daybreak.

Providing viewers with a fantastic launch to the ITV day, Daybreak will come from brand new, state of the art studios and forms a key part of ITV’s ongoing strategy to renew and refresh its programming.

Joining anchors Adrian and Christine will be an unrivalled team of special correspondents tasked with setting the day’s agenda; delivering reputation building news and distinctive, credible journalism; engaging entertainment content and major exclusive interviews; as well as eye-catching consumer items, plus health, sport, human interest and lifestyle features.

In an exclusive interview with ITV1’s Daybreak, His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, gave a stark warning on the environment: act now, or pay the consequences.

Speaking to Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley from the gardens of Clarence House, Prince Charles said the environment is under huge strain and that precautions were needed to combat climate change.

The Prince spoke to Daybreak after spending the last week travelling the country encouraging people to make changes to their lifestyles to help the environment as part of his START 2010 initiative.

 

Below is the transcript of Prince Charles’ interview:

CHRISTINE BLEAKLEY: Thank you for having us. Such beautiful surroundings, you must have very special memories of your time here in Clarence House?

HRH: Absolutely, particularly when I was small – my parents were here so I do have very happy childhood memories of the place. And then of course when my grandfather died we all had to go to Buckingham Palace and my grandmother moved in. So I have, again, a whole lot of very special memories with her here for whatever it was – 50 something years. 

CB: We’ve been talking about the START 2010 initiative all week on Daybreak and the idea is to try and encourage Britain to be a greener place. Personally, just how important is this for you to get that message across?

HRH: What I’ve been trying to highlight is the fact that so much can be done by communities – it’s a grassroots thing. Frequently people have taken it on themselves to try and do all these things, because they get frustrated I think, and they also realise that there is a huge challenge that we’re facing and we’re putting nature’s systems under huge strain and we can’t go on like that if we actually want to hand over something reasonably worthwhile to our children and grandchildren. That’s the only reason I’m doing it, I’m not doing it for my health otherwise.

CB: But you can talk about people trying to cut down on flying, talk to business leaders – but really it’s the little things that each of us can do as individuals that will hopefully, eventually make the difference isn’t it?

HRH: There’s been a huge amount of popularity recently for books about beekeeping, chicken keeping, allotment building. It wasn’t long ago that allotments went completely out of fashion. Everybody gave it up, they all became overgrown, and then they started building on the allotments. And now suddenly there’s an enormous interest in all that. And I think people begin to discover that actually it’s quite fun having bees and chickens and just having that slightly slower approach.

ADRIAN CHILES: We’ve heard that you have a quite magnificent vegetable garden, is that something that you would be prepared to show us?

HRH: Well it’s only small, but absolutely.

AC: I’m sure it’s magnificent in its own ways.

HRH: [To Christine] He’s digging for victory!

—-

AC: So with the produce here, what happens to it?

HRH: Well most of it is used in the house. We have quite a lot of, inevitably dinners, events and things. So the great thing is to have as much as we can, anyway, from here in the garden. And as I say, it’s an attempt to try at least show willing on a self sufficiency side.

AC: You’d appreciate that at the moment these are tough economic times and people are trying to save every penny. And they might say, well its OK – you’ve got a huge garden – you can go green if you’ve got lots of money. But if you get everything extremely cheaply, it’s more difficult to live like that. What would you say to that?

HRH: You could say that, but then on the other hand all this week I’ve been looking at all these marvellous examples on the ground of very disadvantaged communities which have actually taken all this sort of thing in their stride. Just thinking about the amount of food we waste in this country – it’s 10 billion quid’s worth every year, it’s unbelievable. And then people talk about feeding the world. Well you’d think you might start with getting rid of the waste. Think about in the United States how much waste there is. And we could use that, reuse it again, or look again how we actually farm which doesn’t put nature at the centre of the whole process. So we’ve become disconnected from nature and the world around us – how nature works – and we’ve forgotten that we are part of nature ourselves. We have somehow been taught to believe we are separate from it and that nature is something that we exploit and generally suppress. But all that happens is the more we do that, the more we engender a situation where she kicks us in the teeth. And that is happening now all the time. You can see it in terms of the general chaotic nature of the climate.

CB: So what are your views on people who doubt that, who doubt climate change?

HRH: I find it quite extraordinary. To me it seems only sensible to take a precautionary approach. Clearly there is something going very wrong. And I would say to all these sceptics, well alright, it may be very convenient to believe that somehow all these greenhouse gases we are pouring into the atmosphere just disappear through holes and conveniently into space. It doesn’t work like that..

AC: So you’ve travelled everywhere around this country, around the world, you’ve met everybody influential there is to meet. On the basis of your life experience are you an optimist or a pessimist? I mean seriously, are we all doomed as a planet?

HRH: All I am saying is if we don’t take a precautionary approach it’s going to be no fun at all – on the current way we are proceeding – for our children or grandchildren. Personally I’m not prepared to see your children or grandchildren be handed a completely malfunctioning planetary system.

A: Finally, I’ve got no vegetables for my tea, have you got anything spare here that we could take with us?  Is there a courgette going?

HRH: There might easily be – I could pull up a very small onion.

A: But it would be a Royal Onion! And that would be special. Thank you very much.

ITV1’s Daybreak today announces a new onscreen editorial team set to provide viewers with a fantastic launch to the ITV day, alongside ADRIAN CHILES and CHRISTINE BLEAKLEY.

Part of ITV’s ongoing strategy to renew and refresh its programming, Daybreak will come from new state of the art studios from September.

KATE GARRAWAY will be Daybreak’s Entertainment Editor, covering the major stories in the world of show-business and culture. As well as being the anchor for entertainment news from the studio, Kate will conduct some of the biggest A-list star interviews and cover the exclusive events in the entertainment world’s calendar.  Joining Kate will be  STEVE HARGRAVE as Entertainment Correspondent.

Kate Garraway said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to spread my wings in an exciting new role. Show-business is big business and Daybreak will be the place for all the big interviews and stories.”

JOHN STAPLETON will be Special Correspondent, delivering exclusive must – see interviews and investigations; RICHARD GAISFORD will be Chief Correspondent; DR HILARY JONES will be Health Editor; and GRAINNE SEOIGE will join Daybreak as Features Editor.

Daybreak’s team of special correspondents and editors will be tasked with setting the day’s agenda; delivering reputation building news and distinctive, credible journalism; engaging entertainment content, major exclusive interviews; as well as eye-catching consumer items, plus health, sport, human interest and lifestyle features.

As part of the transition Carla Romano and Richard Arnold have decided that they will not be part of the Daybreak team moving forward.

Carla said: “I can honestly say that the last ten years at GMTV have been like a rollercoaster…exciting, scary, hilarious and unpredictable. But most of all never dull. Here in LA I have interviewed and got to know some of the world’s biggest stars, in fact I think I’ve managed to get through all of them!  But Hollywood has become my home and, given my personal ties here, this is where I need to be at the moment.  It is time to start a new chapter and to explore opportunities on both sides of the Atlantic. I wish GMTV all the best in the future and hope that it continues to be the best that it is. “

Richard said:  “I am very happy to take a break from getting up every day at the crack of the sparrows cough! Having said that it has been a craic every day for ten years and I very much look forward to the exciting projects ahead. “

Director of Factual, Daytime and GMTV, Alison Sharman said:

“DAYBREAK plays a key part in ITV’s ongoing transformation and reflects the fact that creative renewal lies at the heart of our schedule, which is being modernised and improved under Peter Fincham.”

“Since acquiring GMTV we have carried out a thorough review and set out to transform and significantly invest in a business that had been lagging behind its competitors in recent years. Change, both on and off screen, is an essential part of the process in our bid to reclaim the top breakfast show spot.”

“As we approach the next stage of this transformational journey our newly confirmed team of special correspondents and editors will set the agenda for the nation each and every morning alongside Christine and Adrian – who will be the lynchpins of DAYBREAK with their unique and brilliant partnership.”

“Carla and Richard have been a vital part of the presentation team and I would like to thank them for the great contribution they have made to the show. I wish them good luck with the new projects they will be taking on.”

 

DAYBREAK will be the title of ITV1’s new look breakfast show presented by Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley from this September.
