  1. TEN News Melbourne 6PM - Tiananmen Square Massacre 1989
  2. Agree with the above. HUUUGGE YouTube videos look terrible.
  3. Nine Newsflash 1991 - classic breaking news intro (recorded by yours truly) RAI 2 1989 - speaking of classic intros, I taped this as a primary school kid and I freaking love the uber-cool simplicity! (and I always found the blooper so delightfully Italian) TEN "Hard Copy" 1991 - Dope intro! RAI 1 Tempo 1989 - most badass weather guy in the world. Seven "Real Life" 1992 - speaking of badass intros. This was a 6:30pm nightly show in the 90s with Stan Grant. These were all taped by yours truly.
  4. What is the CNN theme used here on this ITN promo? Was it for Morning News? ITN News at Ten 1989, with LWT (London Weekend Television) News
  5. As Ten appears set to drop "Eyewitness" (for the third time in its history) and adopt the name "10 News First", here is when Ten first became strongly associated with the "First" brand.
  6. I thought you didn't like foreign-language videos?
  7. So where are you supposed to put Univision or Telemundo newscasts that are from the USA?
  8. Sky News Gulf War Coverage 1991 Sky News Overnight 1989 Anchor chat with Scott Chisholm and Selina Scott Sky News 1995
  9. Sydney 2000 Olympic Bid win in September 1993 - TEN breaking all-night coverage of the big announcement at 4:00 AM! (catch the decision at @4:30) Having watched this live as a kid, I can say this was one of the greatest thrills of my life!
  10. Nine News Adelaide 1988 Seven News Adelaide 1987 on GTS-BKN (inspired by NBC Nightly News) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=lmm5TANxMi4;t=50 Nine News Promo Adelaide 1991
  11. TEN Melbourne Eyewitness News w/Mal Walden 1991 Taped by yours truly at my grandparents' place in Malta: And a brief mash, taped by me also, with TEN Sydney 1990 open:
  12. The problem is - in David Muir, ABC found itself with a dramatic, attractive and especially flamboyant evening news host who is perfect for attracting viewers in the demo - notably women. It's like the so-called "appeal" of Justin Trudeau. Peter Jennings - although not gay - I remember was really the first to have this whimsical, conversational (and higher-pitched) kind of delivery that engendered a deeper kind of "connection" with the viewer than the more impersonal, old-school "voice of God"-style anchors like Dan Rather. Jennings definitely represented a "different" mould of anchorman in his era at ABC. And Muir was the logical successor to keep that style going (in his case, going way over the top. For what it's worth, I am not a fan of Muir's or ABC's new style at all). So, Jeff Glor is the opposite of this style. CBS's mistake was thinking it was just about age, and hiring a telegenic youthful anchor. No, it was about expressiveness and flair and drama - like it or not. Jeff hasn't got it.
  13. Wow. That's some serious nostalgia. The chemistry is just pouring out of that desk!
  14. World Tonight with Clive Robertson 1992 - from my tapes. I recorded this as a kid in Sydney. It is classic Clive - famously grumpy and crotchety, with a very, very dry sense of humor, he is even better here than the caricature spoof of him on a sketch comedy show - and yes, he talks about auditioning at another TV station! I also found the themes quite enlightened and classy pieces - worth listening to the long close. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=EKlRgdAzBxA;t=1140
  15. Ten Good Morning Australia 1989
  16. First, those CONGO credits are ridiculous! And it staggers me that the station could use those ugly-ass fonts on their open. And the talent shot framing is not at all matched. Is this made by a 10-year-old!? And do they have hairspray at the station? Wowsers.
  17. CBS Evening News with Dan Rather 1989 (Hurricane Hugo) Dan Rather anchors CBS News coverage of Hurricane Hugo in the Caribbean in 1989. Recorded via TMC/Antenna Sicilia Italy re-broadcast. I recorded this video from Malta at my grandparents' house - they received Sicilian TV channels over the air from 100km away, and TMC Monte Carlo/Antenna Sicilia aired the CBS newscast every morning! It was my first exposure to American TV news and, as a primary school kid (and especially in comparison to British TV of the time), I was in awe of the "big-budget", movie-style atmosphere of the newscast, centered around the anchor with his big name in the titles, and their epic news theme.
  18. OK this is from waaayyyy out of left field - or "right field", I should say - but how about Steve Doocy? I am half joking, and half serious.
  19. I guess you could call it the 'Australian option'! Obviously, the announcer would still say "with Jeff Glor" in the intro and local promos and that sort of thing. I'm just talking about the "real estate on the screen" idea - and a "less is more" philosophy. I don't know about the U.S. but here in Australia, McDonalds has just started to use this sort of approach - driving on the highways these days, most of the restaurants have removed the actual lettering "M-c-D-o-n-a-l-d-s" with the only signage now being those big "Golden arches".
  20. This is a comment out of left field, but I'll say it anyway. I think the CBS Evening News is better off calling itself the "CBS Evening News" - if you know what I mean. Leave out the "with Jeff Glor" part. And just focus solely on the "CBS Evening News" part. Period. I think it's a stronger brand like that.
  21. Ten Russia Coverage Promo 1991 (TVQ10 Eyewitness News Brisbane) Seven News Perth 1990
  22. ITN celebrates 50 years of News at Ten - one of my all-time favorite programs. Special original closing theme Recorded by yours truly in elementary school - w/Alastair Burnet and Alastair Stewart By the way, that interview with Trevor McDonald features cameos from some ITN greats - Sandy Gall, John Suchet, Carol Barnes and Michael Nicholson.
  23. Couple from TCN 9 Sydney - #1 for most of its time on air. I recorded this from the other side of the world in London in '88, when it was (lovingly) featured on a morning show. A classic. TODAY promo featuring dream sequence with the anchors oversleeping, recorded by yours truly.
  24. WOTV now WOOD-TV 11PM News ATN 7 Sydney 1989 - matching station ID BTQ 7 News Update 1982 TVQ Eyewitness News 1987 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNzbTC_yJAk TVO Eyewitness News 1988 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zB08v9RVLg
