Nine went straight to the news desk while Seven have an opener prepared. Graphics are familiar with those we’ve seen over the last week. It’s 3am in London.

New graphic from Seven?
Seven took its first break at 12:22 - Nine was on its second break by then. Regional viewers getting rolling coverage this afternoon though other news included. Nine’s first live report from London at 12:25.
Counting the number of times we seem the James Bond and Paddington clips.
I forgot how good Georgie and David are together. Top combo.
So what are radio stations that are covering the funeral?
Seven’s graphics are quite ugly. That voice over on their opener sounds terrible. It’s like a voice over from a horror movie trailer.
Sounds like John Stanton. He was the narrator of the Grim Reaper TV commercial as well as the English language announcer for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Seven’s graphics are just basically their news graphics in a different palette while Nine have gone for a unique graphic set for the last week.
Nine: - all four corners
Tracy Grimshaw and Overton are at Westminster Abbey.
Karl and Ally are at Buckingham.
Charles Croucher and Amelia Adams are at Windsor castle.
Very peaceful instrumental music on Nine.
Agreed, sounds so sinister for whatever reason.
Peter and Tracy getting Nine News and ACA supers respectively.
Good use of Google Earth graphics.
Update: Today branding as well
Nine’s presentation look excellent.
Hands down the best graphics I’ve ever seen from Nine News.
