Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

I clicked on the link to the E.Q. site and for some reason the Broadcast Package Samples and Animation Demo and they didn’t show up.

 

Also they said their first client was WFAA - was this a one-off package or are they talking about this?

 

It's an old enough site that you will need to enable Flash.

 

As I look at the WFAA open, I can totally see a few Vance-y elements of it, especially those letterboxes.

Some KOBR material from 1994.

 

Here's a promo:

 

 

Here's a story. Keep in mind while watching, THE YEAR IS 1994.

 

 

Here's a potpourri of other stuff:

Here's a little over half of the WCMH noon news from August 21, 1998 (the day my cousin Carly was born) from a clean studio master with commercials!

A WNYT weather report from the early ‘90s...using that same syndicated graphics package as some stations like WOI, WAPT and KTVI. Typical Viacom — they always used syndicated GFX for their stations.

By 1997, KDLH had shed its late 80s logo and gotten a new logo, set, graphics and evidently music.

Lots of rare stuff from a new channel I just found:

A WMBD promo from 1983 for the debut it's version of Newscope, along with some ids:

And a promo from 1997, just after they changed to the Media General style graphics:

A rare news promo from WBLN (now WYZZ), yes Channel 43 had news back then, and yes, there was a station using the NewsChannel name before KTVK!

A weak quality (multi-generation and poor reception) promo from WAFF in 1981, heralding the arrival Tom Kennemer & Missy Ming from WHNT:

And a promo plus afternoon update from WEEK from early 1985.

I'm not done yet, theres still more rare stuff!

Part of WYZZ's sign-off and 2 IDs from Fall 1994:

Some promos from 1987, including one using KENS' "Clearly the One" jingle:

And more from when they were WBLN:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRrQiLXwRVU

A WTTO id from 1985 using those generic 80's graphics used at many small TV stations:

And some footage of Channel 19 from the WRAU days:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rd7sCt3HyCs

 

Keep an eye on this channel, I have a hunch this is just the beginning!

That WMBD promo can be as early as fall '85. It uses the same CBS News network graphics from the "We Keep America On Top of the World" campaign.

 

I've also never heard that variant of the image song before.

"Local News at 11". It could be almost anywhere, but in this case, it's the KAPP-KVEW news from 1999.

 

 

And in Spokane, a special KREM newscast from 1996 on a devastating ice storm:

You like WVIT?

 

1993...

 

 

 

1996...

 

 

Or WFLA?

 

 

Or KOB? (I doubt the 1986 date, probably late '87)

Some more WWSB from the Heart Of era...

 

 

By the fall, that open was replaced with the more minimalist one with Mike Lewis that's already been posted here:
