Nearly 7 minutes for the headline sequence!! That's got to be some sort of record. I was losing the will to live.

This sort of length is standard with news in Spain, at least in the other programmes I've seen.[/quote]

Same goes to any South American country and French-speaking countries.

From KBS in South Korea, here is a compilation of KBS2's KBS 8 Morning News Time intros from 2004 to the present:

What's the point of KBS having two different morning newscasts, News Plaza and Morning News Time?

South Korean television doesn't really have long breakfast shows similar to BBC Breakfast or NBC's Today show, most of them run for an hour only. As to News Plaza's existence, it is one of two remnants of a former television station. When South Korea was under military dictatorship in 1980, several broadcasters were forced to merge with KBS. Most notably the defunct Tongyang Broadcasting Company, where "News Plaza" originally came from. TBC was forced into KBS and became KBS 2. "Morning Newstime" started in 2004.
