Ten News First Content and Appearance

It does look better without all the faux wood, from that angle it actually looks like the space is bigger. They really need to hide all the cords and that behind the desk beneath the panels. Agree that the backdrop should be able to be changed between summer/winter if they can’t fit or afford to have screens in their place.

When I saw Alan at the desk I immediately thought it must be a double header but Rebecca must still be on holidays.

Have any South Australians noticed any other visible differences in the presentation of the Adelaide bulletin?

Not a massive change to the set from what I can see from picture but they’ve obviously removed the wood features, a new or refurbished desk, refreshed lighting & built the tv screen on the left hand side into a panel. Now they just need to add Alan Murrell as a double header with Rebecca Morse.

I’m surprised they haven’t moved Alan Murrell to join Rebecca Morse at the desk yet.

The updated look brings it more in line with Melbourne and Brisbane.

Adelaide set refresh looks great, including the desk which has been updated (no more wooden top).
[/quote] Much better, although it is a shame they have a very small studio. Any caps or videos with the new set for the Vault?[quote=“killy06, post:23, topic:61”]

[/quote] Agree. Both are really great presenters from what I have seen.

I daresay Sydney will be next to receive the updates, removing the wood features and potentially a new desk. Although Perth probably desperately needs an set/studio update more than they do.

I wish Brisbane had been finished properly, with a proper bulkhead and panels either side of the screens to hide the previous set given how big the space is.

[/quote] Sydney definitely needs a new desk, it is so small. As for Brisbane, I couldn’t agree more. Space is not the issue in QLD, maybe money is, but a more similar set to Melbourne with the standing plasma would be greatly improve.

the more pressing problem for Sydney is having an anchor who doesn’t get 40 weeks of holidays per year.

Definitely has an awful lot of time off. A large portion is most likely long service leave.

Just so that you know that there will be no news this Sunday. Which I think is smart to do

Really? I know that Ten has BBL cricket to air from 4pm until 11pm but would it really be that hard to have coverage on One while a news bulletin (even if it’s just 20 minutes long) is airing on the main channel? Or a short bulletin just before/after the coverage?

Seven and Nine usually keep their bulletins on nights they have sporting commitments (even if it has to air at an earlier/later time) and do you know why? Because it’s a massive opportunity to expose new viewers to the news service and to promote the news during the sporting coverage generally!

I’m not sure about everyone else, but Ten deciding not to air it’s news on many weekends due to sporting commitments actually discourages me from watching their news even on weeknights! For what it’s worth I think Ten do an OK job at their news but I for one can’t/won’t commit to a news service that’s on “when it feels like”! Thoughts?

I agree with you entirely 10000% right there.

Have to agree also, I noticed this the other day while going through the guide. Multi channels are there to be used for a reason.

A short news bulletin would be a good break between double headers, for all of the reasons listed above.

[/quote] Couldn’t have said it better myself. If Ten doesn’t want to help itself, what do you expect?

Just to add…with the high rating big bash coverage…a news bulletin is a great way to promote your new service.

Sorry ten, the world doesn’t shut down because you are airing a sport. This is a very wrong strategy.

Defending ten as usual. You should work in their publicity department

Even better, they could simply air a bulletin in the innings break of the 1st game. You have around a 10 - 15 minute window which is okay for a short bulletin plus you get to expose your news service to a wider audience. It’s a win/win situation for Ten

Ridiculous. On a nightly basis Ten airs The Project in it’s regular timeslot and shows the BBL on OneHD in QLD. Why can’t it just do the same with the weekend news bulletin? Ten needs to make news a priority again.

Stupid to not have either a news bulletin before the BBL or after it. They need eyeballs on their needs service and this is the perfect way to get it to happen.

Yeah, thanks for that. I think that was well covered with the numerous post beforehand. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
