Also from @zampakid’s collection, some Seven Perth content from 4/3/2001:
As you can see, the very early days of Digital TV comes up with some interesting stuff from an On-Air Presentation perspective. Breakbumpers shown in squished widescreen on analogue and promos still being edited in 4.3 with 16.9 program footage being presented in 14.9 with the black bars on the top/bottom.
I’d imagine that it wasn’t overly long before Seven started to produce all program promos for widescreen content in 16.9 widescreen (they were certainly doing that by May 2001, from what I’ve seen) but of course local Perth promos probably would’ve remained entirely 4.3-produced until around 2004 or so.
Wow thankyou for sharing! Do you by any chance have any 16:9 caps of news programs on 7 from the same era?
Unfortunately I don’t, at least not right now.
Besides, I think all Seven News programs would’ve still been produced in 4.3 back in 2001 - they were slower to upgrade than Nine & Ten.
29/10/2000, among @Zampakid’s most recent acquisitions from the West. This recording also included promos for Today Tonight and Better Homes & Gardens/The Great Outdoors but the endtags of those were pretty much exactly the same as those seen in the 4/3/2001 recording.
As a bit of a bonus, a couple of snaps of a Promo/Update for Seven News Perth (Sunday night edition with Paula Voce) if only because I don’t think we’ve seen this style of endtag before:
Unfortunately the tape these came off wasn’t in the best of shape (a pity because there were some interesting promos) but for what they’re worth, more promos from Channel Seven Perth. This time from 30/12/2000 and once again, thanks to @Zampakid:
Also, a couple of “Saturday Matinee” Breakbumpers (Were these ever used by the East Coast Sevens or just by the Perth station?):
And finally, some Promo/Updates for Seven News Perth:
Hopefully someone out there knows who that presenter is!
With thanks to @zampakid, even more old content from Channel Seven Perth!
Promo Endtags - being the Summer non-ratings period and at a time Australian Open tennis would’ve been dominating Seven’s schedule, most of the promos are for shows premiering/returning for the 2002 ratings year!

A few more caps from @Zampakid’s growing collection of Perth recordings, this time from December 2001 (not sure of the exact airdate).
Sponsored Christmas Carols:
Would I be right by presuming that the carols from school choirs were an annual tradition on Channel Seven in Perth? If so, I wonder how long they ran for…
Nine Perth did Christmas carols from school choirs for many years and are doing so recently

do you have any video coverage? Would love to see how Seven covered it back then.
No I don’t.
