Almost 10 years on, a full remake updating it to the present day (June 2017)

Well I can honestly say 'by popular demand' because of the numbers of emails and comments I have gotten over the years asking for an updated version. Considering the original was created for YouTube at the then HQ resolution of 640x480, and the graphics being faithful to what was the then-current 2007 package, this was always going to be a massive job.
So I've finally pulled my finger out and overhauled it in full 1080p.



I'm posting it here to TV Forum first because I thought you guys would obviously appreciate, but eagle eyes amongst you may point out any mistakes I've made. And maybe even some of you might be able to offer some higher quality videos - the worst stuff in there are the BBC World 2005 / 2007 countdowns which are seemingly impossible to find in decent quality online.

Thanks to forum members Bail and Jimmyson for their help filling in some gaps.

This is fab. Couple of very minor things. Please don't see this as nit-picking!

- Original News 24 countdown stayed in use until Jan 2003, not 2005 as it says
- Current BBC World slogan is "Live the Story" not "Live the News"

Awesome thank you for the typo corrections! This is why I uploaded it to Vimeo only first!

Cheers,
