Has this stopped working for anyone else? It also won’t let me download it?

It’s on Dropbox so should work. Try grabbing it from here instead: https://watvvideos.com/temp

I wonder which news theme GTS/BKN used for its regional news in the late 1970’s-early 1980’s?

I always loved the themes from London Tonight in the 90s and early 00s:

Check out the 45 second plus long closer from this Sydney 4pm bulletin on 7 recently…

Someone should record the theme and make it into a video for historical/archival purposes.

Is what what we call a “pull” these days? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::rofl:

In all seriousness I’ll put it into a theme mix video :slight_smile:

Good find from @NaruTVMock over in the 1 News NZ thread.

Some solid clean Seven News theme music being played tonight. Must have been about 2 minutes total from either side of the last break. I’m away but hope someone is capping the coverage :crossed_fingers:

Finally got around to uploading. This is either side of an ad break.

I still prefer the 2002 and the pre 2016 versions. But this one does fit in this specific circumstance

Imagine if they had kept that “riding in on a horse” production music and was used during this time…

I’ve come to warm to the new theme, but I still wish they’d kept the style of the last and just remixed it.

I feel this one will date with the bells and gongs, though the above video does show some new elements we haven’t heard before.

Given the somber nature of the footage the alternate version of the theme might’ve fit better. Less of the loud beat and crashes, more focus on the strings.

Would be good to see these used across the Funeral.

I feel the people who run these bulletins now don’t think about the small things like this. 10 years ago the less bang/clang version would have 100% been used

Here is a longer version

7 Perth opened up with the latest theme from 2018 for their broadcast on Friday sounded quiet nice.

Magnificent get! Someone should mix the return from the break with the throw to the break for a continuous theme clip! Would be great for archival purposes.

For anyone interested here is my attempt at a 5 minute loop of the theme used in this video. Thanks @TV.Cynic :slight_smile:

Edit: If the player above doesn’t work then try here.
