BBC News (UK) presentation - Reith launch onwards

Why can’t they just bring the overnight format to daytime when NC is simulcasting with World? I think it works very well for both channels. A shorter headline sequence at the start, no awkward pauses at :27 to the weather...

And if the NC decides to go to filler programmings at the BOTH, the presenter can introduce by saying “Now on BBC News, it’s time for XXX” after the headline summary sting, just like the overnights; if the NC decides to carry on with news at BOTH, the presenter can say “Now locally here in the UK...” after the headline summary sting, then carry on with the news until :57 to weather. It’s plain and simple! The Vizrt templates is already set up across studios A to E.

BBC News nostalgia, including BBC World

I was finding some clips on tropical storm coverage back in 1997 and somehow I've stumbled across this part of the clip showing capturing the asia feed of BBC World on August 2, 1997.

You'll see Matthew Amroliwala presenting a bulletin, a continuity with breakfillers and promos, and some parts of a programme named "Our World: The Last Governor". The part of BBC World starts at 18:27 and there is a short interruption of an accidental channel change from 19:08 to 19:32 .

(I've added a "?t=" time suffix at the end of the media link but it won't jump to the correct timeline when I press play Zipper )

(Is it just me or Matthew's hairstyle haven't changed much throughout these years?? Zipper)

I've also accidentally stumbled accross this clip from a gallery director's channel, showing a full 15 minute bulletin back in October 1994 on BBC World Service TV. You'll see the gallery's output of the bulletin in full, complete with the talkback from the gallery staff, presented by Nicola Davies. I'm still loving the theme.
