Controversial choice. Sixty Minutes had a good theme tune.

Yes, and Spotlight carried on using it for a time, after the demise of the Network show itself

Indeed, though the titles were changed slightly, with the Spotlight S logo replacing the 60 Minutes logo at the beginning, as seen here...

Ha, yes, I'd forgotten they did things like that. I wonder who had the job of doing that, and what they progressed on to!?

HTV Report West’s OTS set-up span round.

Map on one side, upon which the weather forecast (or rather a couple of magnetic words, no symbols or isobars) was added towards the end of the programme (there was no meteorologist, it was read by the newscaster) and blue screen on the other.

The rotation was supposed to happen out of vision, but occasionally (to my nerdy delight) it would be mistimed and instead of the map or an image relevant to the story, you’d get some poor sod’s panicked face until he’d completed the flip.
