  1. The very first edition of TVS' Coast to Coast on New Year's Day 1982, with Khalid Aziz. Fred Dinenage was the program's sportscaster, and a couple of years later became the main anchor, a role that he holds to this day. First minutes of Staff (that's the name!), Telefe's late night news show aimed at young adults, launched in 2017 to replace a traditional newscast. This recording is from October 8, 2019, when the program's graphics were slightly changed. Juanita Phillips presents an ABC News evening update in 2007.
  2. A compilation of news openers from all the ITV franchises in the south east of England (Southern, TVS and Meridian), beginning in the late 1970s and concluding in 2004, when all regions across the UK (except for Northern Ireland and Scotland) got an unified branding for their news programs. You can listen to a clean cut of the relaxing 1993/1996 theme here. It was composed by David Dundas. Before Antena 3 and Telecinco, there was another private channel in Spain (but didn't last long!) It was called Canal 10, and you had to pay a lot of money to watch it! It signed on in January 1988 and was shut down in September that year. Here's a recent story from TVE's Telediario that explains it clearly. Antena 3 and Telecinco were both launched in 1990. Finally, the theme used by Canal 9 Libertad between 1995 and 1997 for its late-night news update El Reporter Esso, when it was revived for the last time. I bet this was one of the last news programs around the world to be sponsored by Esso.
  3. Former BBC News presenter Peter Sissons has died at the age of 77. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-49908660
  4. Intro and closer of France 2's main evening newscast, anchored by Anne-Sophie Lapix. The program got a slight graphic relaunch in late August. Intro and top story of Reporter Africa, RTP Africa's daily news service, presented by João do Rosario from RTP's main studios in Lisbon. Intro and headlines of STV's Scotland Today in December 1994, with Viv Lumsden and Shereen Nanjiani.
  5. A closer of Telenoche from December 30th, 1999, with the husband-and-wife team of Monica Cahen D'Anvers and Cesar Mascetti. The jib shot at the end is really interesting: it shows that the studio is quite small, but there's enough room for two anchordesks, an interview set and even a Christmas tree! I also like the idea of placing a screen counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds left until the new millennium.
  6. A small montage of Subrayado in 1985 with Omar Defeo as main anchor. Defeo, a well-respected journalist, created the program in 1971 and presented it from its inception until 1989, when he handed his anchoring duties to Blanca Rodriguez and Jorge Traverso. The nightly edition of Subrayado (weeknights at 7:30pm) was the only chance for viewers to catch up with the latest news from Uruguay and the world. Canal 10 was reluctant to add more newscasts: because of that, it offered 7-minute summaries at 12.30pm and at 11.30pm on weekdays (and short updates on weekends) to compensate the lack of full editions. Here's one summary from November 1994. Finally, a full edition of the main evening program (7pm) in early July 2019, days after the premiere of a new look.
  7. Headlines and intro of the revamped Jornal da Record, with a new set, graphics and theme. Anchors Adriana Araujo and Celso Freitas now present the program from a quite small set, leaving the newsroom studio behind after being there for more than a decade. The color scheme is the same as its main competitor (Rede Globo's Jornal Nacional) And talking about Jornal Nacional... here's how they celebrate its 50th anniversary: introducing some segments from digitally-recreated old sets. (BONUS) A 1-minute promo, where the people can't take their eyes off the TV set when they're watching the news. Finally, a full edition of ARD's Tagesschau on April 30, 1994, read by Werner Veigel.
  8. Intro of ABC's 7am newscast First Edition from May 1995, with Tony Eastley. Coverage of the Gulf War in 1991, as seen on a bulletin from SODRE TV (channel 5) in Montevideo, Uruguay. Anchors Maria de los Angeles Fernandez and Edgar Soto read copy after copy to illustrate viewers about the war. Includes excerpts from ECO and CNN. Final segment of RTP1's Telejornal in March 2008 with José Alberto Carvalho, who also reads the forecast for the next day. The weather segment was removed from the program many years ago. Sister cable channel RTP3 airs weather bulletins during news programs, but not as a separate program, like in Spain or other European countries. The "techno" theme of the credits was composed by Elvis Veiguinha. Mark White and John Duncanson present Grampian TV's North Tonight program in 1997. At the beginning of the video it's the station's ident (used from 1989 until 1998, inherited from the launch of the generic ITV logo)
  9. September 1st, 1969: the very first edition of Rede Globo's Jornal Nacional went to the air. Here's an excerpt of its 10th anniversary in 1979, with Cid Moreira anchoring. He presented the program for 27 years (1969 to 1996). Piero Badaloni anchors the main evening edition of Rai 1's Telegiornale in April 1992. For a short while, it wasn't called TG1. A closer of TF1's Sunday evening news with Claire Chazal in 1997. A full edition of Telefe's late night newscast from March 2005, with Rodolfo Barili and Cristina Perez. The closer is at the 21:12 mark (includes a segment called Retratos, with snapshots of the day's most important stories; it was the staple of the program for 14 years)
  10. A segment of the old Jornal Bandeirantes from July 1980, with a report on the closure of TV Tupi (South America's first TV station). Ferreira Martins and Ronaldo Rosas anchored the program. TSR's opener of the evening edition of Le Journal in 2011. Rai Uno's abbreviated lunchtime edition of TG1 from Sunday, April 24, 2005, presented by Manuela Lucchini.
  11. A tour of Perth station TVW7 in 1982, hosted by local personality Peter Dean. It's interesting to see that the tapes and films used to broadcast programs and movies were flown from the eastern states (NSW and VIC) to WA. Perth was a 3-station market at the time (the others were ABW2 and STW9). It didn't get new channels until later in the decade, with the launch of SBS and NEW10.
  12. Boris Casoy recaps the day's headlines on SBT's national newscast TJ Brasil just before the end of the program (June 27, 1997) Less than 20 days later (on July 15), Boris became anchor of rival network Rede Record's main newscast, presenting it until 2005. Adelaide's ADS10 intro of Ten News from September 1988: Intro, headlines and closer of the afternoon edition of Teleberri in 2017, presented by Africa Baeta.
  13. I think that one of the reasons behind this crisis is the lack of advertisement (RTVE removed them in 2010). There are other public broadcasters around the world that survived without placing ads throughout their schedules, such as ABC in Australia.
  14. New logo and set for Rede Globo's morning news program Bom Dia Brasil, that premiered today!
  15. A long promo of Telemundo 12 from 1995, featuring former news anchor Neber Araujo (who used to double as news director during most of his run there: 1985-2002). There are many shots of the newsroom and the news team and the technology looked extremely old for the time being (e.g. the screens in the control room or the large microphones at the anchordesk). Neber was so lucky that he used to have a new laptop next to him when he presented the news. The news division was slightly revamped in the same year, airing bizarre promos like these, produced by Impetu (an advertising company). That's when the ABC News/(National) Nine News globe appeared for the first time. There's even a backstage report, explaining how the campaign was produced. Finally, a closer of the program in June 2014, one year before the globe was removed. The set remained unchanged (with some minor exceptions) from 1999 until October 2015.
