Tyne Tees Look North (North East)
By the way, this is what WPVI's intros look like these days:

WPVI commissioned an updated version of the theme in 1996. It was recorded in London by members of the the London Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestra, but public reaction back in Philadelphia was so negative that it was discarded after just a few days, when the old theme was brought back.

Here is that short-lived theme:

It's easy to see why - the punchiness of the original theme is lost with the reorchestration.

BHT in Bosnia-Herzegovina has a new look.

Here's the intro featuring the Latin script (used by Bosniaks [i.e., Muslims] and Bosnian Croats):



And the version featuring Cyrillic (used by Bosnian Serbs) -- the two versions are used on alternate days:

Strange choice of countries to feature in the titles; Inodnesia, Canada, French Guiana, Mongolia etc. and that they only produced Latin script titles.


Also unusual that the country names are in English -- probably so they didn't need to have dual Latin/Cyrillic versions.

So on alternate days there is no news on those days - serving one language only?
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

It's essentially the same language (with minor variations -- a mix is used throughout). The major difference is the script, and this changes on a daily basis from Latin to Cyrillic and back again.

Shepard Smith has broadcast his last show for Fox News.

And with that, the one remaining impartial presenter on Fox News has gone.

If only the channel was built around him instead of opinionated Trump 'analysts'


Chris Wallace still does a good job on Fox News Sunday, though of course it's only once a week. I also think White House Correspondent John Roberts is respectable.
