Ten News First Content and Appearance


#5558

Thanks for the reminder. There were some Australia Day themed graphics during last night’s Adelaide bulletin, too. Excuse the cap quality (tenplay screenshots).


#5559

Perth caps


#5560

Here are the two bulletins for comparison



#5561

For anybody wanting a quick rundown of the story differences I’ve made one below. Grey stories were studio reads, yellows had live crosses accompanying package stories, greens were recycled from the National edition (not including recycled studio reads).

Also interesting, the National edition didn’t have a Play of the Day instead Lachlan told Chris during the handover banter that it “had” to go to tennis player Dylan Alcott. But the Perth edition DID had a Play of the Day, crediting Aussie NBA player Mitch Creek. Strange…


#5562

Note the Perth bulletin had the updated report on Australia v Sri Lanka test result plus snippets from Australian captain Tim Paine’s post-match press conference.


#5563

That’s why its great that Perth finally don’t have a 3 hour old out of date news bulletin anymore :ok_hand:


#5564

Maybe the backing of CBS made it happen again. ABC’s Media Watch are still on eyes them, though.


#5565

God I’m a hell of a lot maggoted but I love Chris Bath. She is just one of those who make you wanna smile when she’s smiling.


#5566

new news director, ability to spend money where warranted etc…

employing someone specifically for the weekend news also helps, you build into their contracts that they will work 12-8 and cover two bulletins.


#5567

I’m sure that South Australia and (during this time of year) Queensland are still waiting though…


#5568

Baby steps! 1/2 hour old news here in SA is tolerable at the moment. I’d forgo local weekend news if it meant Ten launched another bulletin either mid-morning or late.


#5569

Maybe it’s just me but if I lived in either of those states, I’d want live & local news all week long rather than a delayed, nationalised Sydney broadcast on Saturday & Sunday.


#5570

Let’s just wait and see shall we. They’re still rebuilding their department. I’d say they’ll find a way to localise these cities.

The simplest way is probably to have a separate bulletin running out of Melbourne that covers Melbourne and Adelaide (with pre-recorded local windows for Adelaide) while Sydney can take care of itself, Brisbane and Perth. Just an interim suggestion until resources are beefed up across the country.


#5571

I live in Queensland and couldn’t care less, as long as it tells me what I need to know. I suspect the majority of people would probably not know any better and would think the same.


#5572

Agreed. The average viewer would have no idea its prerecorded.


#5573

30 min delay in SA and 60 min in Qld for 6 months of the year on the weekend isn’t really an issue. 3 hrs on the other hand was a massive issue. Thankfully 10 finally addressed it.


#5574

As I’ve mentioned previously, I can make do with a national bulletin for now but they should at least consider pre-recording the weather segments.


#5575

Not sure if this is new or not (rarely watch 10 in prime time) but a local weather update aired tonight with Amanda Jason. It included tomorrow’s forecast for north and SE Queensland.


#5576

Interesting if true.
Can’t say I ever remember seeing local weekend Melbourne updates.
Hopefully this is a move to localised weather inserts in the bulletin.


#5577

I noticed as well. Definitely new. This was Brisbane.

Last Sunday we got this:
