    The best of British television news - vintage and current. Beginning with some seminal moments in news. Before being known for globalist, trance-sounding BBC news themes, the real gems of British news production were in the 70s, 80s and 90s - an era marked by quality journalism and good, old-fashioned broadcast design. Enjoy a serious trip down memory lane - and some often stunning moments in TV news.
