I thought The Rock is specially made for an NBC affiliate... 😮 Here's Indonesia's tvOne using The Rock (well it's unlicensed ofc).    

Here's the intro of the "Main News" from the "Hong Kong International Business Channel"... I'm not so sure if the theme used is from News Series 2000 Plus, but I'm very certain that the end tag of the

apologies if this one was posted before, but as of 2013 the Sri Lankan NewsFirst was using 615's Rainmaker package, kind of a surprise to hear all the way over there if i'm honest

China's state broadcaster CCTV produces a weekly world news magazine called "World Weekly", and uses cuts from several different Gari news themes on the show (bumper: B Package; open: Advantage; close: NewsChannel). Here's the full show from November 2006, right after the US midterm elections.

That's not a cut of Eyewitness News. The notes aren't right...the last note of the sig goes way too high. but it IS from Gari...the instrumentation is quite Gari-esque.

 

Oh, thanks for clarifying this. I posted an audio clip of this theme on a discussion board several years ago, and the consensus seemed to be that it was a cut from Eyewitness News -- or at least a modified version thereof.

 

Now I'm even more curious about this theme. It was definitely composed by Gari; we also know it was used by MBC (Middle East Broadcasting Center) in the late 1990s.

I don't want to imagine what Peter Dunn and Don Corsini would make to all of those crappy presentations. About 10,000 graphic changes on Dunn's side and sexing it up with sex news on Corsini's side. Add Nancy Bauer Gonzales on that equation and you'll have a bomb in Asia.

Here's one European TV station that does use Gari's Eyewitness News -- Poland's TV Puls:

BTW, some cuts of POP TV's mystery theme sound very similar, so it may be a custom theme based on EWN.

 

It would help if I understood what was being said, but that was the LONGEST promo ever. Also, I think that's NG2, has that even debuted in the US yet?
