The Nine Network and BBC coverage of the Commonwealth Games. I think I like the BBC music better.
After the response to my Today Tonight post I thought I’d upload the ACA opener. Living in Canberra, TT and ACA don’t clash, so I get a full hour of wasted primetime from 6.30 every night.
Seeing as I recorded A Current Affair tonight I thought I’d watch a bit, and it didn’t dissapoint! It was textbook crap, starting with a great story about angry parents fighting bureaucracy (there’s that word), followed by a dogdy removalist, followed by a hidden camera expose on fish, and it all ended by giving us all some false hope about how “you too can win millions from competitions” if you just enter heaps of times.
Along with the refreshed Nine network came these new warnings.
I’m still looking for something R rated to record, will upload soon I hope. But as it turns out we don’t air R rated programs on Australian TV, that probably explains my difficulty in finding an R rated warning (thanks Brendan).
Its been nine hours since the new idents launched, and I’m still not sure what to think (they have a certain old ITV1 feel about them).
That said, they really do manage to use the celebrities in a very tasteful way, it more subtle and candid then the usual “cavalcade of stars” thing that Nine has traditionally gone for.
This is what I’ve got so far from the relaunched Nine network (although some of it is Win because I’m in Canberra). The first video is the ident that ran before the Today show. The second video is Jessica Rowe’s welcome to the Today show and the third is what I assume is the new Nine logo panning from a camera back to the new Today set.
More to come throughout the day.
Given that potentially everything could change on Monday with the arrival of Jessica Rowe to the Today show I thought I’d upload a collection of stuff I grabbed from the Friday’s last pre-Rowe show.
I’ve never liked the graphics on the Today show, especially the weather which has a horrible blue-to-orange gradient in place of the ocean.
