apologys for the poor image quality, this edition of the news was recovered
from the original tape which was stored in less than ideal conditions!!
@austvarchive I guess some Australians weren’t even aware of the potential
of classic television moments :/
I get the feeling Sydney is in love with the harbour bridge and opera
Sounds like Tim Webster’s doing the V/O
A worldwide news theme hit!!!!
@mechsta1980 Yeah that’s Tim Webster alright. His voice hasn’t changed in
this should be channel 10s theme now
I enjoyed watching your video! thanks for sharing!
Anyone out there with the full version of this track???
@juniourmoult It’s “Move Closer To Your World” Cut 10 Piano Version 1
@djwash5 Thanks – I’ve been looking for the full version of the track if
anyone has any links?
@tvw7perth – Where I grew up (just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania),
it’s been Channel 6’s theme song for 40 years, and wags call it that
station’s “national anthem.” Their “Action News” has strongly dominated
almost every ratings book in the Philly market for the last 30+ years. They
started out with 2 competitors in their market, and had as many as 5 at one
time. Look up WPVI Action News here on YouTube – there are tons of versions
of “Move Closer to Your World” from them.
…And Eyewitness News was created also in Philadelphia, at KYW-Tv
Love this piano version. I think WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh used this variation
in their newscasts in the late 1980’s in addition to the conventional MCTYW
KTRK used this in Houston in the late 80s… great piano lick stuff.
I recall visiting Houston on a couple occasions because of family; KTRK(13)
would cut the end theme about where the 1:03 mark is.
Even though I am more partial to the “Good News” theme(used late 80s in
Cleveland on WEWS) or Gari’s updated rendition of CHL(WABC in New York from
1992-95), this MCTYW piano cut gets props.
0:14… let’s say this was in Houston on KTRK, Channel 13… “You’ve been
watching *Eyewitness News,* Houston and Gulf-coast Texas’ Number One
television news service.”
they had been using it since the early 70s.. I remember
I made a mistake in saying late 80s; by then, they went to the Frank
Gari-updated CHL theme. In 78/79 and so on, they used this piano theme.
Love the music and the scenery.
