All Saints will probably have the other Seven production ender (for Seven produced programming) from 2002.

Can’t believe that 2003 ender lasted until 2016 or 2017?

Some of the years might be wrong, as in some over-lap. There’ll be a few others here on MS who can confirm/correct.

But that 90s Seven one went for years and the mid 90s Southern Star didn’t change until after 2006.

BLOOPER! Seven must’ve forgotten to remove that off the 7plus version or the broadcast tape (akin to that Doctor Who Power Of The Daleks Promo’s discovery, read about it).


#5

No, that was my bad. The app’s closed captions weren’t turned off.


#6

I think it was 2014 (when the Seven animation was modified for promos) that the 2003 ender was finally retired.


#7

Should’ve mentioned, from Season 11 (season 12 on DVD) onwards, the DVDs used a home entertainment only/generic closing credits, with the translucent blue background showing various farm landscape footage (which is the background to the 2004 opening credits) and 2004 music theme.

Whereas for broadcast in 2005 and 2006 (as seen in Seven’s dirty masters in the caps above), Southern Cross provided Seven’s own presentation closing credits (those long running red ‘split screens’) to Seven instead.

Only in this case (as seen), they’re blank. That’s where prior to broadcast, the promo for next week would be inserted, which can be seen on YouTube.

Read @Sully’s previously quoted post out loud, slowly.
