Yes, it’s the studio going into “standby” mode or something along those lines. Essentially to reduce power consumption.

Not sure if the new sets in NSW and VIC do it as-well

I mean, with studio lighting, you’re meant to be able to control it so that you can program transitions like this. Broadcasters worldwide do this for a variety of reasons.

Needs more cheesiness if you’re using “We’re With You”…

Not to get too hung up on this tangent, but WNAC-TV (later becoming WNEV and now WHDH) Channel 7 in Boston originated the “We’re With You” campaign that TVW-7 adopted.

While America’s ABC used its own composition to take on We’re With You as a network slogan for 1984-85.

ABC NT’s set is having a makeover ahead of NT Election. The bulletin will maintain tight shots until Saturday.
