A report from the Daily Mirror on a walkout today by many media outlets (inc BBC, ITV and Sky) from a planned Brexit news briefing at 10 Downing Street. It transpired that only certain journalists from certain outlets were invited, so most left as a sign of solidarity.

There's a potted version of what happened in this tweet:

Sadly no surprise.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I'd be interested to know what the piece of music is that Sky News used. I'm assuming it was either an in-house jobby or Library Music?? I've not heard it before, that's for sure.


It sounds generic production music rather than anything commercial - YouTube / Shazam would pick it up.

Remember - Sky do have their own music library http://www.satvmusic.com so chances are it's from there.


The track for the Brexit Night coverage is a remixed version of Promised Land. https://www.satvmusic.com/#/search/track/date/min-max/min-max/all/t_ec6a3919541d5d3d/

Thanks for the link. It sounds like they used the instrumental version from 1 min 28 secs and looped it. If anyone has the sky edit id love to hear it without the constant drop out they experienced on the night

It was certainly a powerful visual/audio combination on the night, although rather a dubious track name under the circumstances. Shocked

I was rather hoping that one of the 'gurus' on here would redub Sky News' video to exclude the poor OB sound dropouts. Very Happy. Here's hoping.

Here is a rehearsal with the full audio when the OB signal was not breaking up: https://streamable.com/rmtgh

Thanks for posting that. its interesting how much brighter and readable the goodbye messages and flags were compared to the live version on the night. The only thing i'm surprised they didn't change after rehearsals was the colour of the word "left" as to me its still very hard to read in the red but maybe they simply didn't have time to render a new version.

I bet there were quite a few disappointed people at Sky on the night who had spent ages making this big dramatic moment to have it spoilt by the signal break up but that said most of us on here thought it was great and was much more impressive than what anyone else did

I also thought there was meant to be a thud on the final second of the countdown but the signal broke up just at that moment, turns out there never was a thud on it

The weather worsened sadly as the evening got on, I believe they even strapped the dish arms to the truck to try combat the wind, tough gig all round.

Was that rehearsal recording done locally at a higher quality? In the truck maybe
