Hillsborough video zoomed in to cut off the banner at the bottom of the screen with the names of the dead (you can still see the very top of the banner at the bottom of the screen). Seems very disrespectful, and I'm not sure why they did it. It's not as if the video was cut short, so they wouldn't have shown all the names.

It wouldn't have had all the names anyway, the 95th victim Tony Bland died 4 years later. I don't know if that's the reason

The zooming was done at the time in 1989 though, not retrospectively for these repeats (it's the same if you dig out any off-air recordings). Not that missing Tony Bland's name would really be an excuse even if it was.
