As briefly mentioned in the ITN News re-brand thread, the news has used a lot of iconic and distinctive themes that are still remembered years after they were decommissioned. The question is, what happens to them once they are no longer used? Are the master tapes still kept in some ITN archive? Or are they literally disposed of once they're done with? I obviously hope the former.
I know it's not ITN as such but would anyone class the current ITV regional news theme as iconic. It's been around for what nearly 10 years? It's nowhere near as historic as News At Ten and some may argue that it is stale. For me it is iconic in the sense that if you heard it from the room next door you would know that ITV local news is on air. Just wanted to know what other people thought?
