I love that theme. :heart_eyes:

Wouldn’t really work today, but the big booming drums at the start scream authority.

I see they’d ditched the cold opens and modified the intro music by this stage after the 1995 introduction of this package.

Great theme but the 1994 version has so much more impact, IMO.

Video of that one, I certainly agree.

Could not stand this package!!! There were only a couple of things I liked - or tolerated - about it. The music grew on me after about 5 years. (I also disagree with the last poster who said that Sandra’s intro was more punchy. The more bare version of the intro - which was in fact the first version introduced - with just the drums (as shown in slicer’s intro) was way punchier!

I also didn’t mind the backdrop, although I much preferred earlier backdrops in the 90s.

Everything about this package had the feminine touch of Carmel Travers all over it - and not in a good way. That Paintbrush bare yellow - really!?

To top it off, I hated Tracey Spicer’s delivery all through her time at Ten in the national stage. She was so irritating, and I’ve never seen a cringier “goodnight” than the ones she used to give!

Give me Eyewitness News or Ten Evening News from 89, 90, 91, 92 or 93 over this any day!!

Oh yeah the package as a whole was dire, and I really hated the sets compared to what was up in 1993 and ‘88 (the “Ten News” era) particular.

But that theme … that is the hill I will die on. It is spectacular.

A few from my collection:
9/9/1994 with David Johnston


27/6/1996 with Sandra Sully:


some technical problems:


19/5/1996 with Tracey Spicer:


June 1996 with Tracey Spicer:

Graphics wise, I actually thought the Opener of this package was ahead of its time.

Honestly…with a sky blue/navy blue/white colour scheme, more contemporary typefaces and obviously more animated elements (for elements such as the supers, full screen graphics, etc.) + being in widescreen/HD, this design wouldn’t look totally out of place on today’s TV screens IMO!
