Even though elements of this presentation style was fairly short lived and (from what I can tell) not particularly well recieved by the Sydney press back in 1999, I wonder if Seven were just a bit ahead of their time? Because from what I can tell, Nine News Sydney is currently having a red hot go at standing presentation and Weather Previews right before the first ad break on a nightly basis!

Mind you, other more conversational elements of Seven Nightly News’ 1999 On-Air Presentation like “Your Holiday Dollar” for the Finance Report aren’t part of Australia’s commercial TV news landscape at the moment but I wouldn’t be overly surprised if they make a return at some point in the future.

This was a good package back at the time, and for the most part still looks pretty good. Interestingly it was tightly integrated with the general 7 on air presentation at the time - same fonts, swirl effects and placement of text elements - which gave a nice uniform feel across the whole channel.

While still frames don’t truly capture the awful animation (it wasn’t one continuous fly-around the country), those national weather map graphics looked a bit dodgy even by 1999 standards! :confused:

Those weather graphics would look okay for a regional broadcaster in the early 90s.

15 degrees in Melbourne. Nothing new there.
