Really interesting thread this. I always felt that the overwhelmingly beige stuff was a massive retrograde step for World and News 24. I also think it helped having a distinction between the rolling stuff and the BBC One bulletins.
Fully agree. World News had a particularly resounding theme (visual/audible) in the form of the flag era, mainly the second one. One knew of its unquestionable arrival onto the screen just by hearing that fantastic music.
Fast forward to the beige era. Timid, or what?
Having watched avidly through the two flag eras, the second newsroom based version was by far my favourite.
