On 6 September 1976, ITV introduced a daytime television schedule for the first time. This new schedule included a new programme, the ITN News at 5.45. The 5.45 marked a major departure in presentational style from the programme that had preceded it. Initially, the bulletins were broadcast from the Police Five studio, which enabled the producers to make extensive use of chromakey to display pics behind the newscaster, several studio cameras, interviews with correspondents in the studio and on a TV monitor, and wide screen shots of the studio set at the beginning and end of the programme, and when handing over to correspondents.
