The one with the water is great...thanks for sharing that.
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.
TVI (Portugal) vs. ABC (US)
Similarities between these two themes:
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:
Wanna talk about knock-offs? Holy moly.
Nova TV, Croatia, 2018:
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)

The Midstate Television News from CBN8 & CWN 6 in January of 1985:
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 the same channel, today's morning news opener and headlines.
