I think the titles are too simplified, that magnifying glass and the map it the background look great.

PS: As i say often, CSO is power!

Wow. It's amazing. I swear to God that they look exactly like Mr. Q's BBC News Mocks. I'm not kidding you. It looks literally the same, with a slight color change. I wonder if they "stole" The idea from him.

Great to see RTE News be co-presented from the " World " Ploughing Championships in Tullamore tonight.
But why was the main piece of advice given to people thinking of coming was " to bring a pair of wellies. "
What else would you wear in a ploughed field or was this to just to perpetuate the myth that Irish people are genetically stupid ?

I knew it looked like a BBC News mock, but couldn't remember whose, thanks for the hint!

Now we have to wait RTE News to have a similar transformation...

I don't even think it's a similarity. It's either some blatant rip-off, or he helped them make it. I hope RTE gets it, but I doubt it.

Mr Q
Interesting! No - nothing to do with me at all... Normally I tend to dismiss the idea of similarities between my work and a broadcaster's, but in this case, I've got to say, I find it hard to ignore just how remarkably alike they are. But hey - no complaints from me. I'm flattered more than anything!

For those who have no idea what my mocks looked like...

Methinks you have been plagiarized Mr Q!

I think you should do something with this Mr Q, I think you have nothing to lose in this case, it's evident that you for sure did your work long before Nuacht TG4.

PS Anybody knows why the mocks were removed from The TV Room +?

woah, the similarities are striking! I would email TG4 just out of amusement

You know what they say about media people sifting through these forums!

But honestly, Mr Q, TG "Cat-hair" will probably think you are a nutjob (quite natural reaction) if you send them an e-mail, but it doesn't hurt to try.

I hoped that TG4 would launch a Gaelic news website, or at least relaunch the existing tg4.ie...

Not to mention the Tagesschau style CSO.

With the last look I often thought that less effort went into weekend bulletins - no headlines at the start and only one camera shot of the studio throughout. I noticed the same lastnight and the revolving globe becomes plain dark blue.
