France 2's special coverage of the "yellow vest" protests and riots:


This was shown instead of the Sunday prime-time film last night. It was one of those typical French slick handovers from the main 20h bulletin straight into the Édition Speciale in the same studio.

The domestic news channels on Saturday replaced padded programming for rolling coverage of the protests.



And here's a similar special from France 3:

Some are nicer than the others, for some reason I can't help imagining that they use cheap templates for their most recent intros. The ones at 2:57 and 4:06 look very pleasant to me; and somehow I wished they kept that recognizable G-E-G-B-A melody (you can definitely make a lot of things out of it).

I wonder how long it'll be before they go back to one anchor? It does seem to be very well executed, IMO, and props to the CBC for trying something different.

EDIT: I didn't want to make a separate post for this, so I've edited this post and put it here:

From the VRT in Belgium, here's the 6pm edition of Het Journaal from 2002 (bulletin starts at 0:50):



I never quite understood why the VRT had that ten-minute bulletin at 6pm, when there was a 45-minute newscast on the same channel just an hour later. I think someone there must have realised this, because they axed the 6pm news earlier this year in favour of a 2 minute update, which (slightly truncated) you can see below:

I think it’s incredibly pretentious, but as you say, as least it’s something different.
