Firstly I want to thank @Bail for inspiring me to take the opportunity to do some animating during the current situation. And I know its a few days shy of the actual anniversary, but 20 years have passed, and these original titles and graphics were a big influence on me, and the future skills I would learn.

So following from my earlier BBC World Countdown and Titles animation I did, I had wanted an opportunity to try to turn my hand to News 24's countdown. This anniversary was the opportunity to try my own take on re-creating these iconic graphics.




Some things to note...
I moved slightly away from the more yellowy cream colours that you see in lots of the screen grabs and low res videos - I tried to use the more pure cream colours from stills I found by Lambie-Nairn, the studios, and the 2000's BBC News website .

I added details that could have been there if it were not for the lower resolutions at the time.

And following conversations about the digital/mechanical nature of the elements used originally - I added some subtle camera shakes and some depth of field to the Globes, Discs/Ovals and Maps.

Nine O'Clock News titles added here

Very impressive. love it. This was the first BBC News look that I can remember sitting watching hundreds of times counting down to the TOTH on news 24 -Still love the music they used to use and although I've not heard it for quite a few years I still knew when to expect the drum beats

I seem to remember seeing a mock of the red and cream titles but with red and white instead somewhere
At school they taught me how to be
So pure in thought and word and deed
They didn't quite succeed
Ballyboy gave kudos
