First at 5:
Seven's 5pm news in comparison (BTW I absolutely hate Seven's globe)
The only thing that lets that set down is the desk front. Should have fitted a custom made screen that extends to the edges of the space left for the screen, or made the desk shorter. The white (and red when breaking news) sections make it look unfinished.
Melbourne closer. Live shot appears blurry.
You would be forgiven if you thought Melbourne looked like Mt Everest tonight.
Still looks better than Perth's painted backdrop.
Yes indeed !!A live shot - No matter how miserable the whether - is ALWAYS preferable to any photo, video loop or painted backdrop IMO. I hate seeing a background of a fine sunny afternoon/evening when it's dark or raining outside. I would rather see it 'as it is' on the day.
Melbourne looking positively HK-esque in that shot.
Enough with the live shots - unless its got some action in it (ie sunrise - martin place), give me a nice designed backdrop anyday!
Funny how Nine Perth's new backdrops shows it's raining when it's actually sunny at times.
It's also funny that they show a night backdrop for the weather on Nine Live Perth
At the beginning of the Morning News there was an issue with the lower third graphics not working:
The Today Show graphics appeared for a moment:
Is studio 24 automated?
Handover update: today they did most of the chat room, went to a break mid segment, finished the chat room, then went straight to Live. No weather or mini ad like last week, much better.
I believe so. I think only studio 22 is now the only studio not automated.
Melbourne using the left of set for special story introductions from reporters.
Nine unfortunately being at the right place at the right time having Gabrielle Boyle at Fairfield Local Court for a Live Cross then suddenly during the break a pedestrian gets hit by a car a few meters away.
Queensland received the new headline graphics tonight.
Stumbled upon this gem from the 70s featuring Sir Eric Pearce, The Late Brian Naylor and of course, our dear Peter Hitchener who is still going strong today.
Brisbane (yes from the HD channel)
That still leaves the Gold Coast
