    "Thames News" was probably the first news program I really liked as a kid. Here are some of my recordings from back then! They had a pretty "unique" news theme in '89! And you'd have to say that long-running Thames River ID (in your clip above) must be one of the all-time greats.


    For what it's worth, I was fascinated by the retro, minimalist, vaguely "Eastern Bloc" vibe I got from this as a primary school kid..




    and their timeless ID in 1989 - elegant and stunning to this day. (and the great News at One)

    Here's a very funny moment of Rich Fisher while working at WXYZ. He steals the cookies that Bill Bonds was promoting on the air.

    Our source needs a capture card, but apparently WDIV ran through news opens like candy in the early 80's...



    As seen on the first TVbD demo, they had a different open by 1983 but this music stuck around as a bumper. And all that, in turn, was gone by 1984...

    That's even better than what I had in mind.
