    From Australia, here's the 1995 open of Nine's Nightline -- Does anyone know if that's one of the original cuts of the WNT theme from Score Productions or if it's a slightly modified version?

    From Compubit's wonderful compilation of Italian news opens, here's TTNews24 in the Tuscan town of Carrara (pop.: 65,000) using NewsSeries 2000 Plus / Stimulus.

    QTQ9, Brisbane, Australia, 1984 (starting at the 0:17 mark); parts of the theme sound a lot like 615 Music's "Something's Happening Here" -- a coincidence or something more?

    I'm going to say coincidence. 615 was a small regional player at the time, and the chronology would be incorrect anyway.

    There are are least two U.S. themes in this compilation:

    The 1980 WGN News Theme and the theme from Back to the Future (its second use as a news theme!),

    From a blooper reel, here's a clip of GTV9 in Melbourne, Australia, using Fast Action by DeWolfe Music (heard on several U.S. stations in the 1970s):



    And staying in Australia, here's an unusual version of Cool Hand Luke used as the close on QTQ9's local news for the Gold Coast in 2003 (Nine's usual version from that period can be heard in the National Nine News open immediately afterwards):

    Nuevo Laredo counts, right? I believe this would be early-mid 2000s:

    América TV (channel 2 in Buenos Aires) used a cut of The One and Only for its morning newscast, around 1997.


    And even was used in a parody of that newscast!

    It seems REN TV in Russia used Killer Tracks' Action News in the late 90's...

    Speaking of Russia, Channel 4 in Yekaterinburg has used both Image News and In-Sink. Here's a 2003 clip featuring In-Sink:

    Last time on the Mark Haffner Music World Tour...

    A cut from On Your Side somehow made its way to Belize on Love TV! (That doubles the number of stations ever found using the package — though two more are listed by the NMSA besides WKRN).

    Tonight...

    It's an African twist, as GBC24, the newscast of GTV in Ghana, has a...Leading Edge!



    And as a special bonus...

    In that same video, Guatevisión with Magnum!
