Unsurprisingly, tonight's BBC Channel Islands News was dominated the Jersey historic abuse enquiry/report. It was a fully separate programme, rather than handing over to the latter part of Spotlight.
I've seldom watched BBC CI News before, and not for ages.
When the Plymouth programme first had its current refresh (with the "special mix" of David Lowe music, et al), the CI programme retained its previous title sequence, music etc. At some point since then, it has finally got round to introducing the same music as Spotlight.
The CI title sequence begins with a map of the islands, in the same style as Spotlight's map of the South West. CI's version of the "map bit" of the titles is however much shorter Spotlight's. Whereas Spotlight's 18:30 titles start with a long note (nicked from Wales Today!) accompanying the map, and then another "linking bit" of music before getting to the main part of the theme, CI's titles don't have any of that extra duration bolted onto the front. All visuals - including the very brief "map bit" - fit within the duration of the main melody.
