    Non-News Classic Video

    A small part of Tom Bergeron's résumé: hosting WBZ's teenage discussion show Rap Around in 1988. The program continued to be on the air for another decade. Anyone knows who succeeded him as the host of the show?

    International Video Thread

    A promo of Canal 7's Desayuno in 2001. It was pretty succesful at the time because it was the only TV program during the breakfast hours: the other stations (America, Azul Television, Telefe and Canal 13) didn't sign-on until or after 10am, when the program ended. It was canceled in 2006.

    The worst news opens of all time

    TVI, Portugal, 2005: the lower thirds and graphic elements are great, but not the open!

    Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

    WCVB also used that campaign "The One to Turn To" with the same animation for the logo! I remember seeing it on a demo reel, but I can't find it on YouTube. Anyone knows who composed that jingle?

    Non-News Classic Video

    An ident from ESPN (South American feed) in April 2000. At the very end includes a small excerpt of a bumper from MTV. Continuing with ESPN, some promos from May 2001, including one from SportsCenter, which was launched a couple of months before, on November 15, 2000. All of the sportscasters there are still working at ESPN! Let's go back on time to November 1996! Canal 13 offers a pretty interesting primetime lineup on November 11: a documentary about otters, followed by the television premiere of the movie "Sleepless in Seattle". Unfortunately the station removed primetime documentaries and movie offerings many years ago to make way for Marcelo Tinelli's Showmatch. And finally, a nicely done stop-motion ID from Telefe, used during the spring season in 1996:

    International Video Thread

    A local news update from Canal 5 (Rosario) in 2000, presented by Erica Fontana. She moved to Buenos Aires in 2006 and became one of Telefe's main anchors. The station aired two-minute updates during the afternoon and had an early evening newscast (7pm weeknights), opposing to Telefe, that removed the broadcast from its schedule in 1999.

    A promo of Radio 10 (AM 710) from 1999. I hope you don't get scared by the lip-sync!

    Non-News Classic Video

    An excerpt of Seven's coverage of the 1994 AFL Grand Final between the West Coast Eagles and Geelong. Includes a short appearance of Home Improvement's Richard Karn, doing a minor repair. Seven aired the program for many years in Australia, and aired one episode that night (October 1st, 1994) at 6:30pm, right after the news.
