Partial Bulletin with Hugh Riminton 22/1/2002:
I reckon if they revived Nightline in the future they’d use the current opener for the Morning News EXCEPT:
I’d want the old blurry night opener circa early 90s. And you need National Nine News to capture the opening properly. Great iconic opening theme.
From 1980, the first edition of the original:
Nightline Newsbreak 16/9/1985 with Liz Hayes:
Loved that opener and theme.
Hated the set.
That was their green screen era, ugly all over
Agree. Loved the graphics and theme.
I don’t actually remember seeing a 2006 Nightline opener with headlines until this video.
Nightline opener with Helen Kapalos (2005). How long did Helen work for Nine?
From memory about 5 or 6 years. She moved to Nine Sydney from NBN in the late 90’s/ early 00’s and was made the main Nightline presenter after Hugh Riminton left for CNN.
She also worked on varies national bulletin and ACA as a reporter.
Nine need to reinstate the Nightline name.
I’d love to see that theme reinstated. The 2006 variant is just sooo good.
Strongly agree with both. I loved that the Nightline theme was unique and different to the traditional Nine News theme.
