    A fire alarm knocked ITV News at Ten (which is produced by ITN) off air. They apparently stayed on for a few minutes until a package ended and Tom Bradby explained that they were going to evacuate and may be back. ITV put up their break down slide and left the building. Unfortunately they were not able to get back into the building in time to finish the broadcast. ITV London’s nightly newscast, which are also produced by ITN in the same studio, did not make it to air. Instead an adjacent region, ITV Meridian, was piped in and broadcast to London viewers.

    Teledoce (a TV station from Montevideo, Uruguay) used an imitation of an old Nightline opener from 1997 until 2015.

    (despite being a carbon copy, it's a very good open)

    The original open

    It's nothing new for TVI. Listen to their news theme from 2009:


    Now, listen to the Sky News theme from 2005:

    Portugal's Canal 1 (now RTP1) 8pm news opener used from 1990 until December 31, 1994.

    Surprisingly, this open belong to the time when RTP and its two channels were the only TV services in Portugal, but SIC and TVI (the two private networks) ended its monopoly in 1992 and 1993, respectively.

    Some snippets of Canal 13's 1pm newscast from early March 1988, anchored by Carlos Asnaghi (he went to rival Telefe in 1990)
    Take a look at the studio and the L3s: it was very archaic!

    On Monday, April 29, 1996, Portuguese TV channel Canal 1 got its current name: RTP1; a new logo, IDs (look very Lambie-Nairn, despite I don't know who've done it) and a music theme used on signposts seen throughout the day.

    Promo that aired before the launch (the change took place during primetime)


    Compilation of IDs


    Full music theme

    Here is a horrible news open from RTE in Ireland from 2003-2007 with all those letters and numbers. You should be glad we here in the USA don't have an open like that and to me it seems more futuristic than Gannett's 2008 broken fax machine:

    In case you want to see this atrocious and extremely uninspired news open, go to 0:32.

    What does something like T9B868D5 7BR69T8RD5EVCG8B7R9877-BR69B6BR6 even mean to viewers?!

    From Argentina: Canal 13's late news headlines from last night.

    Their news theme is very upbeat. I like it, but I'm not sure if it fits in a national newscast. What do you think?

    From Australia: ITQ-8 (Mount Isa) signing off the air on a Friday evening back in the mid-1980s, with a voiceover announcing the next day's schedule.

    This station broadcast programming for remote areas of Queensland and New South Wales.

    From Argentina: Telefe's IDs from 2000-2011, collected from Beta tapes.

    This channel used to have a very cheerful music in those IDs, to differentiate it from its competitors, who were more formal.

    Shameless plug. A video I made of the various BBC World News simulcasts open/closes by KCET with some programme elements

    ITN Morning News at 5:00AM 1989


    Recorded by yours truly as a primary school kid in London (when I used to sneak downstairs before 5 to catch this... and familiar to one or two of you!) - this was always one of my more stunning clips. Everything about the Morning News was fascinating back in the day - the 5am start, the live updates all night (ITV had just commenced all-night broadcasting), the CNN block, and that theme. And of course the presentation was dope. I was an aviation nut too, so this newscast hit home. To this day, there is still something raw and moving about this clip, their presentation of the first pictures coming in from the United crash, and the tension you can feel from the start to finish.
