  1. A 5-minute update from BBC South Today from April 4th, 2020, presented by Allen Sinclair. The program provided useful telephone numbers for viewers during this worldwide pandemic. There's a small weather check at the end of the video. Intro and headlines of Ten News from August 2006 with Steve Liebmann, who came out of retirement to anchor Ten's weekend news throughout that year. He previously served as TEN10's Eyewitness News weeknight presenter between 1987 and 1990. Complete intro and partial segment of Telefe Noticias from late 1995: includes that strange "virtual set" camera shot that tries to make a small studio bigger.
  2. From France: an interlude and news intros of the defunct La Cinq network in 1992. The theme music was too futuristic! Finally, the first 2 editions of Globo Noticia in April 2005. It was a brief 3-minute newscast that aired in the mornings and afternoons.
  3. Before becoming Queen of Spain, Letizia Ortiz was a television journalist, and for a short time, anchored TVE's main evening news. Here's the intro and partial headlines of Telediario in September 2003. Some months later, she resigned and left the TV business forever. Partial weather forecast and closer of Telefe Noticias' midday edition in 1995 (includes some anchor banter). The zoom-out effect at the 0:48 mark is not courtesy of Viacom! Another news closer, but from Brazil: Jornal da Gazeta has a new theme and graphics!
  4. CNN Brasil went on the air tonight: here are the first minutes of the new channel. A montage of RTP1's Telejornal with Cristina Esteves covering the latest COVID-19 developments from Portugal and abroad.
  5. Headlines and partial segment of the late night edition of TG1 from May 6, 1997 with Filippo Gaudenzi. The intro is at 6:51. From January 2008: intro and headlines of SBS' World News Australia with Anton Enus. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, TN anchorwoman Paula Garcia was forced to stay indoors and put herself in quarantine after her children returned from a vacation in Spain. Because of that, she has to deliver the news from her own home via webcam! Here's some footage:
  6. A couple of weeks ago, Jornal da Band premiered a new open and L3s, but keeping the theme, in use since 2010. Here's the full opener: Argentina's public broadcaster underwent some noticeable changes lately: here's a montage of tonight's early evening news. Sadly, the biased, partisan coverage has returned after the change of government in the country almost 3 months ago. The news director was fired and replaced with one closer to the new administration. Finally, a small excerpt of RDI's news headlines and intro from December 2001, with Pascale Nadeau.
  7. Another Action News used the same campaign to promote its anchors: here's a small portion of a WTNH promo from the 1980s mocking Janet Peckinpaugh's last name.
  8. A full-hour report of KPIX's Eyewitness News in December 1984, with Kate Kelly and David Jackson, both filling in for Mac and Wendy.
  9. From Boston: the intro and segment of WCVB's NewsCenter 5 on February 7th, 1983 with Natalie Jacobson and Chet Curtis.
  10. 27 years ago today, TVI (Portugal's 4th TV channel) signed on for the first time. Here's a story presented on RTP1's evening news which includes an interview with Clara de Sousa (the first face seen at the station's launch; she's been with SIC since 1998). TVI was owned by the Portuguese Catholic Church at the time and its news director was a priest! The channel was later sold to Media Capital in 1997.
  11. A closer of ABC's coverage of the 1990 Kentucky Derby, using a slight variation of the beautiful 1990-1992 theme composed by Edd Kalehoff. It's awesome!
  12. Two of these videos are about Brexit: first, a special opener from BBC's North West Tonight, which contains the EU and British flags. Also from the Brexit issue, TN (Todo Noticias) using the BBC election theme (probably without permission) for its coverage. A closer of Jornal da Globo in 2003 with Ana Paula PadrĂ£o. I liked this period a lot: the music theme and the newsroom jib shot were great, as well as the anchor's presenting skills and presence. And finally, some bizarre stuff from Twitter: Telefe Noticias welcoming back its evening anchors after a long holiday with Maluma's popular song Felices los 4 and some pictures where the presenters are seen with their partners. By the way, here's how both anchors joked about the promo at the end of tonight's program. I'm really sure this idea is not from Viacom (the network's owners). That's not Periodismo! (journalism in Spanish, the news division's slogan).
  13. After concluding the celebrations of its 60th anniversary, RTP's Telejornal has kept the theme but made some slight changes to the opener (the identity has been in use since March 2016). A personal note: it's outdated (including the theme) and should be replaced. Network 10's extremely bizarre promo to congratulate Sydney newsreader Sandra Sully for her 30 years of service. Includes appearances from presenters Tim Bailey and Chris Bath. A long closer of TVE's Telediario from this afternoon. It shows footage of the wild weather that has been affecting Spain recently. Also from this afternoon, a personal recording: a small montage of Todo Noticias' late afternoon/early evening segment (5 to 7pm). It's mostly focused on bumpers and throws to commercial breaks. I've also included the opener of the following segment, that airs from 7 until 10pm.
  14. Earlier today, Newshub (Three's news service) premiered its new graphics and theme music. Excerpts of Jornal da Band from February 2008. High-definition telecasts began 2 months before, in December 2007, with Band being the first in Brazil to adopt the new technology for news programs. The newsroom looks great, but not the anchordesk. A full edition of the Australian Today show in August 2003. Before watching this video, I'd never imagine that they still used the late 1990s theme for the intro. A time later, they replaced it with commercial songs, such as U2's Beautiful Day and Coldplay's Clocks.
  15. The first post of 2020 on this topic! Longtime Perth anchorwoman Monika Kos is changing channels: after 22 years as a presenter of TVW7's Today Tonight, she'll anchor 10 News First beginning January 13th. Here's a short promo: ITV's Good Morning Britain has been reformatted today. The 6:00-6:30am segment is now anchored by Charlotte Hawkins and is fully devoted to recap the day's major headlines; Susannah Reid and Piers Morgan will take over from 6:30-9:00am. Here's some stuff that I left out in 2019: Rede Record's new look for its national morning newscast. The anchordesk and the newsroom's green lighting are quite rare, but I love the music theme!
