Granada North West Today
The Six is currently available on iPlayer. Unless I am very much mistaken, is there a relic from the 1999-2003 package to be heard right at the end of the coming up sequence? (See approx 12:50 in...)

Oh my goodness, you're right! That sounds like the end of the One promo sting / summary end sting from the 1999-2004 period. That literally hasn't been heard on TV in 14 years!!

Crazy how that is still lurking about - they must be using some seriously old kit for that to surface in 2018! The BBC were still using MiniDisc when that sting was still current.

I *think* someone may have commented on Millbank using this out of date sting before on a fairly recent set of overnight bulletins that came from the Millbank studio, so this may have been commented on before yet still no-one has seen fit to fix it!

News at 6 also using the old (2008) headline bed for the first headline but then reverting to the current headline bed for the rest of the sequence?

EDIT: Not a very long loop on the side wall with the globe graphics on? During Mark Easton's studio interview it visibly looped back to the start 2 or 3 times.
