  2. We had a funnier-sounding version. ;D

    I would like to see TVQ to resurrect "Stand Up and Tell 'em". It's my local station, so I'm interested to see the modern implementation of it. BTQ7 had resurrected a promo from the late '80's. Channel 9...well they're still using "Still The One"...

    Thanks, newscentre, but for some reason I'm not able to see embedded YouTube videos on this site. What station is the clip from? Slovenia's POP TV uses Gari's Eyewitness News (if that's what you're referring to), but I haven't seen any of the station's material on YouTube yet. You can, however, watch their evening newscast here: http://24ur.com/bin/video_show.php?24UR_d=1167735600&show_media=1615 (click on "Novice")

    Anyway, here are some vintage international news clips that I recently stumbled upon on YouTube:

    SABC, South Africa, 1988 (promos in Afrikaans, news in English):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OE88pgMP5wI

    SABC, South Africa, 1985 (news in Afrikaans, uses the same "spinning globe" graphics in the open as NBC and Australia's Seven Network during a part of the 1980s):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrDRc1TCAf4

    GBC, Gibraltar, 2000 (ID, the evening's schedule, news -- the territory's population is less than 30,000):

    An Eyewitness News Update from TEN-10 Sydney, circa 1984:

    That user also has a bunch of other clips from Australia:

    The Ten clip looks more like 1982 to me. 1982 & 1984 doesn't sound like much difference, but they were making huge leaps in gfx at that time.

    By 1984, Ten Eyewitness News had changed from the clip to this:

    Thanks, Hinto. I thought that newscentre was talking about Gari's Eyewitness News music package. Still, I love the 1980s Australian material (which I got hooked on thanks to fox1 ;) ).

    More YouTube clips:

    A special report from Germany's RTL on Saddam Hussein's execution:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNk76cug_Uo

    ORF's (Austria) short afternoon newscast in its entirety:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73P4Kr_pxiI

    Here's an open from RTL in the Netherlands:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zfr0dNeyjM

    I've posted this one before, but I just love the very 1970s feel of this 1977 TVE (Spain) open:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23LIaqOmpVA

    Same network three years earlier (1974); the open is already in color, but the rest of the newscast isn't:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnB3t2egS_M

    Assorted 1970s and '80s clips of France's FR3:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9yc-ldJRs0

    The 1986 open from FR3 in France (features a helicopter in the open, which is unusual for a European network):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfqvcian984

    A very psychedelic 1975 open from TF1 in France:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeMfku0dybQ

    Same network, ten years later:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHD6FbULEfw
     
  8. Here's RTL Germany, with their techno-fied version of Non-Stop Music's Power News package.
    http://www.youtube.com/v/yGTIAUDF7D8

    Also, their previous news and graphics package, using the original Power News theme.

    Thanks! However, I'd just like to point out that the second clip is, of course, from a parody, even though the graphical elements are essentially the same as in the original newscast.

    I tried to find some opens used by RTL's other stations across Europe, but I haven't had much luck. The best I could do is this heavily-edited clip from RTL-TVI in Belgium (2006)...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWUsbqoSQkc

    ...and this 1990 clip, with both the open and the close, from RTL4 in the Netherlands (note that the backdrop features landmarks from various cities around the world):

    Here are the same elections as seen on Channel 1 (IBA):

    Here's a special find: A clip of the main evening newscast in Bosnia-Herzegovina from 1994, including the open. At the time, Sarajevo, from where the newscast originated, was surrounded by Serb forces and subject to almost continous shelling, as it had been since 1992. The lead story on this day was a shell that his a group of children, killing seven of them. Parts of the clip (after the open) contain disturbing video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alLlsItbE3w

    The anchor you see in the clip later wrote a book about these wartime newscasts from Sarajevo.
     
  13. I probably can't bear watching that video. My neighbours are from there, and I've heard about the situation there.

    btvgmv6 uploaded a bunch of clips again. I love that guy. This clip in particular:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dI5Gzo0jic

    First time I hear the Turn To News-esque theme on an actual TV0 news bulletin. Didn't know Kay McGrath worked there once either.

    A different version of Turn To News on this clip:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr6gh8BIohQ

    They don't actually have that round spherical building in Brisbane do they? (I'm hoping newscentre can answer...) I honestly think that's Science World in Vancouver, and I think I see BC Place in the shot where the fireworks go off. I suppose their anchor was in Vancouver covering Expo '86, which would make sense since Brisbane was getting ready to host Expo '88.
     
  15. Nope, that's definately not in Brisbane, must be the building you are talking about.

    Here's a long 1979 clip of ITN's News at 545 in the United Kingdom, the first day back after a strike that left the ITV network off the air for weeks:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpZXP5tigQs

    Here's a clip of ITN's News at Ten from the mid-1980s. It includes a promo for a local newsmagazine and an LWT (London Weekend Television) ID:
