International News Presentation: Past and Present

TV3 Malaysia's news programmes have their openers, lower third graphics and studio background (only for Buletin Utama) refreshed and now broadcast in widescreen (16:9 safe) instead of the perpetual 4:3 since 1 September. However TV3 news has already been produced in HD (downconvert to 4:3 for viewers) since the original studio upgraded to HD in October 2012. Newsgathering cameras are in HD since last March or April. TV3's on-screen graphics have been upgraded to 16:9 safe anamorphic last month.

New graphics (includes TV3's sister channels); see post 3419
https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/1921291/+3400

While the previous (June 2015 to August 2017) was a copy of RTL Nieuws of the Netherlands (criticised for being plagarised and TV3 has taken a deaf ear about it), the new one is an MRT train crossing Kuala Lumpur.

Although an MRT station is located next to Sri Pentas (TV3's studios at Bandar Utama), the station is not mentioned in the station map seen in the opener. (see first link below) The routemap is not the same as the real one. (see second link below)

The opener is at 0:29; preceeded by headlines



Here's the opener from 20 years ago where Sri Pentas is the focus of the opener (actually it's from a report on the opening of Sri Pentas):

International News Presentation: Past and Present

Well, I am disappointed by the lack of VR. The titles are still those flat ribbons taking almost half of the screen.

As for the intro, the logo is visually as disappointing as it used to be. I'm sad that they didn't take advantage of the new set to provide something new visually.

At least the music is cool. But as usual with France 2, the job is half-done.

————

In French-speaking Canada, new intro for Le Téléjournal. Here's a few seconds of the intro of the midday edition. More elements will be published in a few hours (or days) on video sharing websites probably.



The Telejournal logo seems to be a variation of the CBC logo.

With the German federal election being just around the corner, here's a short compilation of the Chancellor candidate TV debate openers:


Also including Peter Kloeppel, the long time RTL Aktuell anchor.

Here's a short article about the latest TV debate: http://www.newscaststudio.com/2017/09/04/germans-merkel-schulz-meet-das-tv-duell/

Back to France with this compilation of M6's news intros, including some lesser-known ones from the channel's early days:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y83VXZiilz0

The beeps you can hear in the "Six Minutes" intros are Morse code for "M6".

Haven't seen the early ones before. Anyway back when I started getting interested with M6 in the late 2000s I found the first M6 logo to be scary.

Solar Eclipse 1999

Worth noting that the Discovery Channel showed it (when they cared about this type of thing), but they came on air during the day which didn't happen normally, shock horror they interrupted the Home & Leisure channel for a couple of hours to broadcast it.



Thanks, a few minutes of the coverage are online. They broadcast from Alderney, which had slightly better luck with the weather than Cornwall (also described in a visitor's travelogue from the time).

Didn't Discovery do some special moon landing anniversary shows "as live" in 1999?

Discovery had a special on Titanic (this is from the Brazilian broadcast where they're shown as an update later in the evening local time besides the main program; Portuguese commentary with the original on the background):

International News Presentation: Past and Present

Today, Argentina's Telefe, recently purchased by Viacom from Telefónica (parent company of O2), is relaunching their news operation, which is moving from their longtime studios at Calle Carlos Calvo in Constitución, in Buenos Aires proper, to their newly-built studios in Martínez, just outside the capital.

Nearly all of their bulletins are changing names:
Baires Directo (their morning newscast) becomes Buen Telefe
Baires en 10 , a ten-minute weather and traffic bulletin which aired before Baires Directo , is scrapped and absorbed by Buen Telefe
Telefe Noticias 1ª Edición (their midday bulletin) becomes El Noticiero de la Gente
Diario de Medianoche (their late news) becomes Staff de Noticias
Their main 8pm newscast retains the name Telefe Noticias , but loses the nickname Noti.20 they had since earlier this year.

The end of the last-ever Baires Directo :

The end of the final edition of Telefe Noticias 1ª Edición :

And the end of the final Diario de Medianoche , Telefe's last-ever newscast from Carlos Calvo:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1SCrLoBXyc

And a promo on the changes:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcm2H52cnTU

I've yet to watch the videos, but this feels like New Zealand's TV3 changing their news to News Hub branding.
And Argentinians prefer to have the name "Noticias" after the station name (Telefe Noticias) rather than the proper "Noticias Telefe".

How long has Telefe been in Calle Carlos Calvo?

International News Presentation: Past and Present

News 7 is the daily evening newscast with the format just like any other country, while News Watch 9 focuses on in depth stories of the news of the day just like NHK's commercial competitors but one hour early. Neither commercial stations have their prime time newscast between 7 to 10 pm unlike other countries. Instead they have a news update and weather just before 9 pm. But the late newscast are as usual between 10 pm and 12 am.

Both newscasts mentioned above have their new look earlier in April. News 7 previous look lasted for a year. No need to ask but they already have English translation audio although they're not in the embeded video in the post above.

The most peculiar part is News Check 11. I'm not sure how to say this but it's not like any newscast in other countries. It is aimed towards younger audiences (probably because they prefer stay up late at night), while the former two are for general audience. The theme music as appeared in the intro is from the same guy who did the theme for TV Asahi's Super J Channel in 2010 which is Yasutaka Tanaka. The studio set is a replica of a typical radio studio (not your usual radio conty studio) and is more laidback style. The lower third has the viewers' tweets. The last part has one of the number one song playing over the weather forecast which changes everyday.

NHK has partnerships with various broadcasters for news reports just like any other country.

I never watch NHK newscasts on TV. But I do have some knowledge on the newscasts.

Another note: News Watch 9 prefers to have a cold open instead of a typical news opener. Also News Watch 9's studio set now looks a bit laidback. Previously it looked sedate. Also each newscast have their own meteorologists.

You might have know this but Japan prefers to change their newscasts from every three to six months to every few years to improve ratings or other reasons. The theme tunes of some newscasts prefer to have some string instruments sounds, some want piano, others don't. It's not like in Brazil or France or maybe any other country.

Another peculiar thing is they love graphics on printed cardboards and models.

Coverage of North Korean missile launch (including the activation of the J-ALERT system):


The J-Alert feels a bit different to the Early Earthquake Warning. Usually there would be a notification-like sound thing but this one's don't.

The NTV News 24 video has the long siren warning with the latter part read slowly.

This comparison shows how different Japanese TV networks react to the J-Alert warning:

Midday News Intro Compilation Mainland China 2017
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6iryuWrciY

It seems that CCTV still struggling to change their logo to a newer red dot one, despite using the current logo in use since circa 1999. Feels like they've ditched the late 1970s logo a few years after they change to the present one. Also the digital clock is so 2000s.

And also the Hong Kong-like weather logo thing that I saw in the BTV and Shenzhen part. Can anyone tell what this mean and is it similar to Hong Kong's?

Also all Chinese TV channels love having their on-screen logo on the top left and never switched off at all.

I'm a newcomer to French TV but it seems that the French prefer to have their last names in bold. I think it's only in French-speaking countries.

Anyway the new BFM TV looks more like a fashion show to me. The font feels like being in a magazine. And the presentation, based on the last two BFM-related videos that I watched, feels informal. The punctuation point used by BFM TV as a logo and the ender for headlines feels like Seven News in 2014.

There's also another BFM in Malaysia but it's a radio station focusing on business and spoken word programming; unrelated to the French BFM. The logo is different than the French's.

A fragment of ATN-7's Today from 1959 (no direct relation to the present-day Today, which airs on the Nine Network, except of course for the fact that they were both named after NBC's Today ):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Indthz0OkS4

From 1968, a promo for and an intro to another Australian version of Today, this time from GTV-9 in Melbourne:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TF5yMdHZ224

This is Nine Network's Today from 1985:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfZg-O48Xxc

And from 1998, this is the first incarnation of Seven's Sunrise, when it was still a hard news program:

Kudos for sharing the last video. This took place when its almost the end of 1998 Commonwealth Games. I was 4 back then and I started getting interested with TV presentation of my country. And right now at my country we're in the midst of the SEA Games.

Speaking about the video, this was uploaded back when I was interested with Australian TV and I had subscribed the the uploader's channel.

Here's the granddaddy of them all, NBC's Today...

...in 1952 (We've already seen this clip of the first-ever Today -- and probably the world's first on-air ticker --, but it's always interesting to see where the now familiar format had its origins):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY4_iv3UbGg

...and in the 1970s:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzDfIalnt8E

The first video has the presenters using very heavy microphones, much like Silvio Santos in Brazil. Few decades later and people use the lapel mic which is smaller.

International News Presentation: Past and Present

I don't know about you, but I realise that Germany is more conservative towards TV news presentation than other European countries. I'm a bit late to the French TV crowd but to me France feels more advanced than Germany. UK feels a bit conservative but more improved. Italy has some bits of conservativeness especially TG1 and TG5. Denmark's are also interesting but not conservative.

International Presentation

Yes - SVT - just like the BBC with Reith - has its own typeface - Publik. It relaunched broadcast and online output using it last year I believe.

http://esseninternational.com/showcase/svt-publik/

There is also a styleguide for digital content on their website

https://styleguide.svt.se


SVT really LOVES to change its graphics


Their previous look in 2001 has these elements: the flower was based on the Japanese floral emblems, color palettes, flat colors, promo/trailers and program menu are based on the grid system. Not forgetting the BBC elements too.
