Here's my all-time favourite. Wish I knew who wrote it - and, more to the point - whose copyright it is!!!
Ten Eyewitness News, 1989
I have some info on this, but it's not much. My music teacher at school in Sydney in late 1990 told us he was going to Channel 10 one afternoon - as part of an orchestra - to record a new news theme. Of course, as a teenage Channel 10 'tragic', this piqued my interest! What is intriguing, though, is that Ten didn't actually change its news theme in late 1990, or 1991, or any year until 1995. So I have always thought he was referring to the
"T-E-N That's Entertainment"
idents and promo package, which did premiere in early 1991, or that his "news theme" was shelved. Either way, my school music teacher (and his associates) had an association with Ten in 1990, and could well have produced the previous news theme in 1988.
The only other name strongly associated with Ten News music after that was the
of famous Indian-Australian songman Kamahl. A very quick Google search finds that his name is Rajan Kamahl
