ITN Lunchtime News: 1987-1989

On 20 July 1987, the lunchtime news was moved to a new 12:30pm slot and renamed “News at 12.30”, with Julia Somerville (who had just moved from the BBC) becoming the main newscaster. Jon Snow also presented the programme at this time. The following year, on 28 March 1988, a revamp in ITV’s daytime schedules saw the bulletin moved back to 1:00pm and became News at One again. A few months later John Suchet became one of the main newscasters of the bulletin.
