the popular name 'Eyewitness News' from America,
this news opener was in the style of Ten's then
current ident. It used the same music as the
opener before it. Canberra station 'Capital'
adopted the opener for their own local news.
What looks like a cross between
the two news openers above and below this one,
using the same theme as the Ten Evening News
opener before it, but with the name Ten
Eyewitness News in the new Channel Ten font.
opener is based totally on CBS America's 'CBS
Evening News'. Notice that the first letter of
every word in 'Ten Evening News' spells TEN. MORE INFOģ In 1990, Ten in Sydney and
Melbourne changed from its 1 hour bulletin at
6.00pm to this 30 minute one, introducing the
current affairs programs 'Sydney with Mike
Gibson' and 'Brisbane with Anna MacMahon' in the
remaining 30 minutes. Melbourne, however, stayed
with the 1 hour bulletin until November 1990,
when it was cut down to 30 minutes by Ten because
of its struggling financial position, along with
the Sydney and Melbourne current affairs
programmes, both axed. In April 1991, all
bulletins were changed back to the 1 hour format.
