Sally, 51, was back on the BBC Breakfast sofa alongside Jon Kay on Mondays show and one of their first segments was about it being 100 years since the BBC’s first radio programme.
Jon, 53, said: “Now, on this day, 100 years ago, the BBC broadcast its very first ever radio programme in 1922.”
Sally continued: “Yeah, exactly. Back then it was known as the British Broadcasting Company and ran its first ever radio broadcast from 2 LO.”
As she was talking, a reel of faces were whizzed through on the screens around them for viewers to glimpse.
Jon joked: “We’re whizzing through 100 years there!”
Sally replied: “I’m not sure that’s really very good,” before Jon asked for it to stop.
She then added: “I’m feeling a little bit sick now, can we stop that?”
The footage duly stopped and some archive footage was shown instead to which Sally said: “Thank you” before sharing a laugh with Jon.
Continuing with the report, they said: “The first programmer was a news bulletin was read by Arthur Burrows, who read it twice.”
With another laugh, Sally said: “Once was fast, and then slowly so that listeners could take notes if they wished.”
Referring back to the spinning reel of faces, she said: “I think we should run those pictures again much more slowly next time.”
Jon agreed, adding: “Once fast and once slowly, yes, and we’ll be reading that again more slowly in an hour’s time.”
BBC Breakfast airs daily from 6am on BBC One.
