Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)


Recommended Posts

WAGA newscast from January 31, 1999 (well it starts there and flows into the beginning of February 1) featuring coverage of the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl XXXIII loss to the Denver Broncos. Worth noting is this also marked the debut of WAGA's new set.

 

Right after the series premiere of my favorite show, Family Guy.

The Chris Sloan archive gravy train keeps giving. There's even some rare KHJ from 1988! The 9:00 VO at the time would later do a lot of ABC Sports work in the late 80s and 90s. The 1:00 one was a

I just hope you hate the really bad ones like everyone else.....

 

Clips of the LA TV channels after the Northridge Earthquake (the first 14 min are from a camcorder recording a portable TV):

A three-part series on the early days of KPAX (1975-88). The station signed on in '75 but didn't begin any local production until two years later, starting up inserts in the MTN News then fed from Great Falls. A full-on local newscast from Missoula was introduced in 1986:

I’m now on Jacksonville!

 

Keep in mind I am possibly not going to update the WJXT opens though or any existing news open compilations from other channels, but I will be doing existing TV markets that don’t have any compilations.

 

Also after Jacksonville I’ll be doing Cincinnati. And yes, JPMcFly1985 has some WLWT open compilations on YouTube, but I’ll be adding the ones post-2000.

That WJKS one is pretty darn good-- I think it's one of the few times (maybe the only time) I've heard the Cool Hand Luke/NS2000 music on a then-NBC station!

Not sure if this was posted anywhere else in the forums...

 

KIRO-TV, 1985, an Eyewitness News promo from the "News Specialists" campaign. The music (believed to be by Klein&) has evolved, and is now accompanied by an orchestra, giving it a more lush and bolder sound.

KTVI must’ve used the Chris Crane pack for a year I guess, cause we now have the first version of its Eyewitness News open.

I've never understood why they dumped the awesome Chris Crane music for Gari's EWN-- the Crane package would've really fit in given that they had just switched to Fox, but instead they chose to go with a package designed for ABC affiliates, which they weren't one of anymore. Doesn't make any frickin' sense.

I agree. I even though the Crane pack was used WITH this package until I saw this.

 

More from that same station too:

 

Btw if I do plan on updating existing news open compilations KTVI will definitely be on that list, and so will WRTV and all the Cleveland stations.

And, another clip. This time from a June 1997 edition of its 11:00 a.m. newscast, from after the switch to the "Fox 2" moniker.

The graphics in the KDNL clip clearly are a mod of the Ellis Communications graphics from that period, but more or less closely resemble the mod of said package that WSMV got about a year or two earlier.

All are EQ Vance graphics in his prime!

 

Clips of all 3 Boston TV newscasts in the days after Elvis' death (including Live on 4's predecessor First 4 News), not sure if there are any news opens in this video:

Speaking of Elvis' death, here's that day's news from Antenne 2 (now France 2); the King's death is covered extensively, but the top story is the resumption of Concorde flights to New York:

 

 

It's not TV, but this is how Elvis' death was announced on the English service of Radio Luxembourg, the legendary pan-European pop music radio station:

The transition from "Area 10 Eyewitness News" to "The Daily News" at WAVY took place in 1981. Here's an aircheck of highlights of the last weeknight Area 10 Eyewitness News:

 

 

Man, I don't know what was going on at WAVY in the late 70s/up to this, but it sure seems like they wound up in a timewarp for a while. I mean, comparing the seemingly near-zero budget of a lot of this look with

- to quote a promo from the era, it's "the difference between night and day".

I wonder if some of the reorchestration was done by AM Music (Steven R. Allen and David C. Maddux). There's a relevant Copyright Office entry: "KIRO news, the spirit of the N. W.; K I R O radio and TV news Christmas song." (1984)

 

The follow-up theme KIRO 1989/1990 was also done by them, we believe. AM Music also has a "KEZI TV theme" to its name and the original music theme to Almost Live!.

 

Also, that KNSD look had to be so upscale for '88...it still holds up after thirty years, though more as a period piece.

Will give KDNL credit they had a nice polished newscast back then. They could have done well with themselves if they would of kept on.
