I know - some of the shots are very nice on More4 News. They've done that opening shot every night so far without any problems. There was a fabulous camera shot on Channel 4 News last night from behind Jon Snow while the postcom sting played.

I really like the theme music to More4 News. It's a good re-mix of the C4 News theme. I also like the titles - they're very stylish without being over-complicated.

There's a simple wipe on the titles which cuts to the camera shot of the screen that have similar animating titles. It is very clever.

...plus a camera shot that pulls out at the same time. Channel 4 News have been doing something similar since their relaunch, making it look like the camera's tracking past an obstruction and suddenly being able to see the studio. It's probably really simple and yet such a headf*ck. It's great Smile

two interesting tit bits on tonight's show. three actually

firstly a considerable echo during the interviews
secondly a clean credits sequence (no pointless interview thingys)
and thirdly. The laptop seemed to be stuck on the Windows XP logon screen. So is it just for decoration or did she just not log back on after the screensaver... hummmm
