Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)


Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Ryan. I have been lurking around this site for a while. Always good to see the posts on the Classic Video Thread.


Here's my first contribution, something very rare: segments of NewsWatch circa 1978 on Kanlaon Broadcasting System (KBS) in the Philippines (later RPN, today known on-air as CNN Philippines), presented by Ramon Imperial (no open or anything else, unfortunately).

I made it to 250 posts! And at least half of them was on this thread!

Don't know if this WEAR 1999 newscast has been posted up in here. I still love this theme and to me its kind of great in a way (but now it kind of stinks with Sinclair also owning WPMI)..but they have been very unique until the Sinclair acquisition.

KMGH in 1985 (60fps!) with coverage of a flash flood in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The open is clipped but it's a nearly full half hour with a young Harry Smith, the Welch Newsmat look and set, and a fantastic close:



Great looking set. Also near the end, the first bulletin of news about the crash of Delta 191 - about 15 minutes after it happened.
