  1. Ah, 1989! So many tapes.. great tv memories from lots of places. Awesome video.. the first of many, I hope!
  2. ahh, such funny stuff. the good old days, too! I liked both the real and not-so-real Bobbies! Jane Turner (top of the page) is kind of a comic genius, I think! If you haven't seen the CNN chopper clip, I command you: Watch it now! and the others are so good as well. Man, that one you posted is so funny WWU! What is she doing (!)...OK I get checking your computer, but Riz is on-air (!) and, well, she's supposed to be too but she's chucking her pen all over the place, etc.. :)I vaguely remember seeing that clip somewhere a while back. Every time I see it, I laugh. Bobbie is kinda endearing and charming, though with a tendency to be a space cadet at times! 1989: NBC/7 Australia movie intro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXwd_ltVGNE 1989: 7 Australia ID: the only (

  4. TEN-10 Sydney: Eyewitness News with Katrina Lee and Ron Wilson: sport-to-newsreader throw/weather/closer, 1981: TEN-10 Sydney: "10 TV Australia" ID, 1990: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPVZ4pzYQG8 TCN-9 Sydney: National Nine News open, 1989: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFuZWl8RV7U&NR=1 tim, I loved that 1990 Ten news brand and prefer that theme to the current one. Their current theme (the original version) took over from that power-military-drum theme in 1995. About Channel 4, I find it interesting and kinda cool that the hip, stylish Channel 4 has a seriously modern news open, yet the theme is exactly the same as it was in the late 80s.
  5. It's interesting to see that Sydney MCTYW. I associate the theme more with Melbourne.. in an Australian context, that is, as Australia's kind of "Move Closer hub"! It lasted longer there, I think. Great stuff though. 1979. Wow. CTC-7 Canberra, 1995: Ten Capital Eyewitness News http://youtube.com/watch?v=I0LBOzzq_nU 6:00pm news open. I believe this was the last Australian station to use the "Eyewitness News" brand, continuing after Ten dropped it in late 95.

  7. Wow. That's rocking! That's the "cleanest" start of that open I've ever seen. A full second or so of grey dots before anything happens. Also, a rare "no voiced-over" open. Only in the Gulf War did that happen on TEN-10. The only thing that's slightly off about it is the way the titles "QTV Eyewitness News" appear on screen exactly simultaneously. It's noticably less stylistic than the network opens, of that brand. Also, a little odd how they fade from the open to the headlines. But nice work from a small-town station. Nice set. Nicely dressed anchors (which is not always a given on country stations!). Exact same OTS's as Ten Sydney.
  8. : this is probably the best, "most classic", station ID ever in Australia. That's a lot, coming from a diehard Ten guy! ..well, along with Ten's 1991 flyover! : a fairly good 9 News promo. HSV-7 Melbourne: Seven News following Sydney 2000 Olympic Games: late news following the opening ceremony Nine Network Australia: Wide World of Sports ID: an updated classic!
  9. 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:
