Aussiebeachut has uploaded a video that does a nice job illustrating an interesting affiliation switch in Australia. A few posts above, we saw a clip of QTV in Queensland with a Nine Network-style local news open:

 

QTV, Queensland, 1990 (promo and news open):

QTV was about to become the Nine affiliate throughout regional Queensland as part of the process called "aggregation." At the last minute, however, the owners of WIN Television (essentially a large station group consisting mostly of Nine affiliates) bought a competing station, which became a Nine affiliate instead. QTV was therefore forced to link up with the third-ranked Ten Network.

 

Here's a clip from the following year, with QTV now using a Ten-style news open and the name QTV Eyewitness News:

BTW, note that the Ten Network opens were based in part on the CBS Evening News open of that time.

A historical compilation of BBC2's Newsnight opens from 1980 to the present:      

Two Latin American broadcasters have made changes to their on-air presentation recently.   Brazil: This past week, the local newscasts on the SBT owned-and-operated stations (Porto Alegre, R

From Austria, a preview of ORF eins's new look, which is set to launch next week:    

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.

Staying in Australia, here's a wonderful 1979 clip of MTN9 Griffith with local news, ads, promos, etc.:

 

 

And here's GMV6 in Shepparton from 1981:

 

 

Something more recent (2006)... the first edition of WIN News for Western Australia, which had been WIN TV's only market without local news:

I think this does count as an international video, but here's former ITN/ITV News anchor Trevor McDonald dancing at some business function:

 

What's next, cell phone video of Peter Mansbridge and Lloyd Robertson doing karaoke?

Here's some videos from me. ;D TV Patrol from 2003-2004. The intro I have posted on these forums before, but the ending/weather segment is a first. Interesting to note that they use some sort of AccuWeather based system, as Ernie (the weatherman) mentions the words "AccuWeather".

The open to CTV National News from May 15, 2007:

 

If I were you, I would use KeepVid to download it RIGHT NOW before it gets "the message" (you know, the "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by CTV Inc." message)!!

 

UPDATE: It's still there!

TEN10 Sydney, 1979:

A 3-minute recording; the last 10 seconds feature an incomplete open to Eyewitness News, complete with "Move Closer".

 

NTD8 Darwin, 1996:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4GPsvqOibk

Customized version of Nine Network's ident and news open (w/ Cool Hand Luke).

 

TVB Hong Kong, 1982:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rje_gZHz-xE

Open to News at 9.30.

 

Also, TVB's station sign-off from around the early 80s (the black-and-white film's probably an old film from the 50s); they actually played God Save the Queen and showed a picture of QE2. I think they quit doing that long before the handover.
