News at Ten - 1987

The News At Ten was ITN's popular flagship news programme for more than 25 years, before being axed in 1999 for a time as part of changes at ITV. Here are the 1987 titles, complete with Bill Steel introducing the programme over Tyne Tees' clock. Clip Courtesy of Iam Burn.


News at Ten - 1992

Computer generated titles were introduced to ITN's News At Ten in 1988, with this particular set lasting from 1988 through until 1992.


News at Ten - 1993

This look to the News At Ten remained in use, albeit with some minor changes, until 1999.


Morning News - 1992

The ITN Morning News began in 1988 with the advent of 24 hour broadcasting and initially had the quite colourful slot of 5.00 in the morning for all those insomniacs. Unlike many of the news bulletins, its slot was only shortened once with the programme moving to 5.30 where it remained unchanged well into the ITV years, before finally being axed in 2012. This example is from April 1992.


Morning News - 1996

Another example, this time from 1996, with a different presenter and music.


Gulf War Report - 1991

During the Gulf War conflict, ITN ran regular updates in the days before large numbers of UK rolling news channels existed. This file shows an entire 3 minute bulletin, bringing some of the latest developments, as well as giving phone numbers for more information, although with such frequent updates how many people needed to call them.


ITN News Update - 1991

During the overnight ITV block throughout the 90s, ITN provided frequent short summaries of the news, to keep those huge numbers of people who were still awake at 3am informed of all the late-breaking developments. Anne Leuchars presents this edition from 1991.


ITN World News - 1992

The ITN World news showed international news, and orginally used to be broadcast via satellite worldwide at night, in British time. It would then be repeated to terrestrial viewers here the following morning as part of the ITN Morning News. It no longer exists, but does anyone know which year it was abolished in? Also watch out in the file for a young(Well.. younger) Trevor McDonald!!!


ITN News at 5.40 - 1992

The ITN News At 5.40 was the precursor to the 'Early Evening News' - with the time eventually being dropped from the title to avoid the need to rename it every time it moved slightly. Bill Steel proudly introduces this bulletin on Tyne Tees.


ITN Weekend News - 1994

The Weekend News from 1994 with shots of the ITN headquarters featuring in the titles.


ITN (Short Bulletin - C5 Launch) - 1997

Just hours after Channel 5 launches, an ITN short update bulletin from overnight ITV on 31/3/1997. During the bulletin, Tim Willcox gives a very brief nod to the new station launched the previous evening. Check the accompanying Teletext service for some more views around the launch.
