News Themes

I’m a fan of the new ABC News Daily (Previously The Signal) theme. The first ep had a thank you for a Daniel Golding for the theme but can’t find more info than an ABC page.

It’s certainly a vast improvement over the AM, TWT and PM themes that were updated a few years ago.

Importantly, it’s good to see them commissioning themes from Australian composers rather than reaching for free copyright music like they did for News Breakfast and the election theme

I don’t think News Breakfast is copyright free I think it’s a production music piece that they would have paid to license

Yes, it’s production music.

If anyone is interested to hear what the ‘One News’ package from 2003-2004 would sound like on the current 1 News at Six bulletin.

So good. That whole 2003 look was underrated imo… ahead of it’s time.

Yeah - I don’t think it was overly popular internally or externally. I believe in the old days of MediaSpy an insider referred to it as “Shell Helix Motorsport (the Sunday afternoon Motorsport show of its time) meets 1News”

Hahaha. It’s why the 2004 refresh was brought in?

Yeah, I believe it was. They really went back to a slower one for 2004-06 eh.

Am I watching the start of a rave or a news bulletin?

I also enjoyed the 2004 relaunch with the blue ‘running people’ titles.

This link appears to be broken? Did anyone download the piece and could share here now?

This track has a nice clean opener and bed towards the end:

There used to be a good video on YouTube of the way they do the opener theme, headline bed now days, but it’s gone private.
