  1. Excerpts of the first night of the "new" Antena 3 Noticias on 14 September 1998. Ernesto Saenz de Buruaga debuted as anchor of the main 9pm newscast, along with the introduction of new graphics, music and a huge studio. A full episode of Canal 13 Buenos Aires' popular news and current affairs program Monica Presenta from 1979. In this edition, Monica Cahen D'Anvers interviews Buzz Aldrin during his visit to Argentina. The show used an instrumental version of the Kayak song "Starlight Dancer" as its theme. The episode was taken from a special program that aired in 2004, wh
  2. From the early 1980s (and until the early 2000s), Ten was the only Australian network that frequently aired live reports during its newscasts: they were one step ahead of the competition. Seven, Nine, ABC and SBS rarely aired live "crosses" at that time due to budget and technological limitations.
  3. A full broadcast of ITV's Evening News from 8 March 2021, with Mary Nightingale. Most of the program is devoted to report on Oprah Winfrey's interview with the Royals. On the same date, but 22 years ago, ITV was making big changes to its news programming: the evening news was moved from 5.40pm to 6.30pm and the late news was controversially pushed to 11pm. Here's the report from News at Ten on 4 March 1999. Back in 2021, also on 8 March, an excerpt of Television Nacional de Chile's late newscast Medianoche, and its new graphics:
  4. I found this beautiful theme today but I don't know who composed it: Canal 13 in Buenos Aires used it on its lunchtime newscast (13.00) between 1984 and 1988. The sound quality of the excerpt is quite good: the user who uploaded this video to YouTube says he recorded the music from the TV speakers on a TDK audio cassette back in 1984.
  5. Another program that got a new look this week is Canal 13's Telenoche. The revamp has been promoted on-air for several weeks as one of "the biggest in its history", but ended up being a complete dissapointment. The rendition of the classic theme is horrible and doesn't sound good: the L3s are too big. The set is quite decent, but the couch is unnecessary. Anyway, here's tonight's broadcast:
  6. Television EspaƱola's long-running news program Telediario premiered its new look today. The changes were scheduled to take place in January, but due to a big snowstorm that affected Madrid and its surrounding regions, it was delayed until 15 February. Here's a montage: A full weekend edition of SIC's Jornal da Noite with Alberta Marques Fernandes from 21 January 1996. The music used for the bumper that follows the open (when the camera slowly approaches to the presenter) sounds like the one used by the defunct British satellite TV company BSB in 1990.
  7. Montage of Canal 7's lunchtime newscast from September 2006. On that year, the news service was revamped with new graphics, set and music (composed by Indigo), trying to rebuild its credibility and establishing a modern, elegant visual identity. By 2008, some changes were noticeable: the animation's blue background became reddish (like the lower thirds) and the station had more money to spend, as they finally replaced the studio cameras they've been using since 1978 and 1995 with new ones, that offered a decent picture quality. Like the rest of the competing channels, they ad
  8. Also from L.A.: a partial segment of News at Ten from July 1991. Includes a promo and a report on the launch of KTLA Morning News, that aired for the first time the following day. Plus, some excerpts of WRDW's weekend newscasts from 1997-98 (includes opens, close and Image News as the theme! ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNkll2H34bo
  9. 28 years ago: the premiere edition of London Tonight, anchored by Fiona Foster and Alastair Stewart. The program was an hour-long show at the time and it was a combination of news and current affairs. Later, it was cut back to 30 minutes and reformatted as a traditional news program. SIC Noticias is celebrating 20 years on the air this week and they made slight changes to its identity (logo and graphics). Here's an excerpt of the new look for the midnight news, presented by Rodrigo Pratas.
  10. A promo of the (then) upcoming launch of TVI's Jornal Nacional in late August/early September 2000. The newscast went to the air on 4 September 2000 and was presented by controversial journalist Manuela Moura Guedes, who turned this average news program into a sensational, tabloid one, trying to differentiate from its well-established competitors (RTP's Telejornal and SIC's Jornal da Noite). The format worked well, but Moura Guedes was fired twice from the anchordesk: first, in 2005, where she was reassigned as a producer; surprisingly, she returned on 9 May 2008 to anchor the F
  11. Excerpts of ITV News Channel in 2003, presented by Angela Rippon during the Irak War. It's strange to see Angela working here, as her face was associated with the BBC for years. The same happened when I discovered that Andrew Harvey and Chris Rogers (another two BBC veterans) were also with ITV's rolling news channel at the time. A very young Aldo Silva anchors a weekend news summary of Telemundo (Teledoce's news service) on 5 December 1993. He's been the program's main anchor since 2004. A full edition of Rai Uno's Telegiornale (TG1) from 6 October 1988,
  12. The very first hour-long edition of Azul Noticias, aired on 24 May 1999. On that night, Azul TV brought back its early evening news (7pm) after cancelling it earlier that year. The program was a mixture of news and entertainment: some of the bizarre reports shown that evening were about personal trainers, voyeurism, astrology and an interview with the host of a XXX channel. Intro and partial segment of Nine's Today, aired on 25 February 2004 and hosted by Steve Liebmann and Tracy Grimshaw. The program was still using U2's song Beautiful Day as its opening theme.
  13. I've found the theme used by Telefe Noticias between 1990 and 1992. Surprisingly, it's production music and it was composed by John Tesh! It's called "Destination Paris". Hope you'll like it!
  14. A funny video from WXFL/WFLA in Tampa Bay (mid to late 1980s), where anchor Bob Hite mocks and dances to the theme music of Miami Vice. Includes appearances from Bill Ratliff and Gayle Sierens.
  15. Some regional news services from different parts of the world: Closer of Noticiero 8, from Canal 8 in San Juan, Argentina, around May 1995, followed by an ID that mentions its relays. At the time, this was the only OTA station in the province and cherry-picked programs from the major Buenos Aires TV channels to fill its schedule. Early morning news broadcast from XHOAH-TV (channel 9, Multimedios Television in Torreon, Coahuila), aired on 18 December 1998. A late news roundup from Television de Galicia's Telexornal, aired on 27 May 1995.
