Extra Helpings of Breakfast and Seven Sharp

TVNZ 1’s COVID-19 programming response will see extra editions of news shows Breakfast and Seven Sharp screen over Easter Weekend.

Traditionally local programmes like these go off-air over long weekends and on public holidays to save money.

But this year Breakfast will air from 6am-9am on Good Friday (instead of the previously scheduled Royal Variety Performance 2019 and The World’s Most Scenic Balloon Journeys Minutes by Minute), and on Easter Monday (instead of Extreme Cake Makers Royal Wedding Special and Blue Planet Revisited).

TVNZ 1 also is adding 9am episodes of Les Mills Body Balance on both days.

Seven Sharp will screen instead of Extreme Chocolate Makes Easter Special at 7.00 on Good Friday and instead of The Celebrity Chase on Easter Monday; Celebrity Chase will now screen at 7.30, pre-empting the 8.00 broadcast of Dog Squad.

There also will be Good Friday editions of 1 News Special at 1.00 and 3.00. The Coronation Street repeat will air at 1.30, the 2019 Royal Variety special will be dropped and an episode of Tipping Point added at 2.15.
