Granada North West Today
Yes I think it's only been since 100 Days began that the News Channel has taken the same programme also.

Yes, historically News 24 always did its own thing at 7pm.


When BBC4 started up in 2002, BBC World produced a specially branded bulletin focusing on international news and analysis, which was actually very good. Curiously, the programme was branded differently on each channel - it was "BBC World News" on BBC World and "BBC Four News" on BBC4. Somehow they managed to play out two versions of the titles simultaneously, although I've never been able to figure out how! Unless BBC World Pres had something to do with it? I think N9 used to play out the BBC4 branded version.

Anyway, It was (unnecessarily, in my opinion) refreshed in 2004 and became "The World" - in essence, only the set design changed and the titles/graphics colour scheme was changed from orange/red to green. Eventually it was replaced by "World News Today" in 2007 and replaced again by 100 Days/Beyond 100 Days more recently. It's only this latest incarnation that has also aired on the News Channel.

Yeah, I think that's why I was so cheesed off when it was replaced in January 2004 with "The World". That fantastic original music lasted less than 2 years on air. There was also a gorgeous closing version which I can't seem to find an example of on YouTube.

Incidentally, I felt the same way again with ITV News in 2009. They'd gone to all the trouble of relaunching News at Ten in January 2008 with one of the best theme tunes they'd had since the 1990s - not to mention the marvellous opening titles - only for them to replace it less than 2 years later.

I wonder why broadcasters do that? They absolutely nail the branding, then dump it quickly. Yet the inferior branding that replaces it lasts for years and years! One of life's mysteries!

That rings a vague bell - I think World Pres did play out separate titles for a time ...
