Here's what I think is an
cheesy promo from TVNZ in 1995, plugging the new-look early evening slot, containing a newly-extended hour-long edition of what was then called One Network News, followed by current affairs programme
Another year, another cheesy promo (0:03 below): this one is from (I think) 1996, and is a promo for One Network News as a whole. Don't you just
the anchors' cheesy grins to the camera at 0:50?
And how about that song?
Incidentally, the late news anchors from that era were actually an item at that point. The rest of the video is a mix of bloopers and various other bits and bobs from One (Network) News over the years, with intros from 1997 (the 10,00th edition of One Network News - 1:20 in the video), 1999 (2:24) and 2004 (4:27 - with my favourite version of the theme. I sound like such a saddo saying that...
Finally, some excerpts (0:17 onwards in the video) from the final edition of TVNZ News at 8, a nightly hour-long bulletin broadcast on short-lived commercial-free channel TVNZ 7, which was closed down after New Zealand's centre-right government pulled funding for it. Since the channel's closure, New Zealand has lacked any true public service TV.
