WJZ Channel 13 - "We Love IDs Too!" (On-Screen ID, 1983)

Views: 2495

Here's one more example not from Chicago TV but still interesting to show the differences in stations presentations' of The Day After (an ABC Theater telemovie about the effects of a full-scale nuclear attack on the United States).

WLS-TV did not have an on-screen station ID for the entirety of the movie. However, WJZ Channel 13 in Baltimore, Maryland did. I don't have the entire broadcast to see how many there were, but this is at least one example.

WTTW Channel 11 - Movie 11 - "Threads" (Opening, 1987)

Views: 1816

Here's the opening to a "Movie 11" presentation of Threads - a harrowing, deeply depressing look at the immediate and long-term effects of a full-scale nuclear war. This British film makes The Day After look like an episode of Gilligan's Island.

Just take your ol' Uncle Fuzz' advice - don't ever watch this movie - just don't. You'll feel better, trust me.

Features a quick bit of Fuzzy modification at the end, just for some morbid fun. ;-)

WDHO Channel 24 - "Nuclear Destruction: Catch It On WDHO!" (On-Screen ID, 1983)

Views: 6560

Here's something not from Chicago TV but still interesting to show the differences in stations presentations' of The Day After (an ABC Theater telemovie about the effects of a full-scale nuclear attack on the United States).

WLS-TV did not have an on-screen station ID for the entirety of the movie. However, WDHO Channel 24 in Toledo, Ohio apparently thought it was appropriate to put several of their ID's on screen throughout the movie - the most distracting of th...

Here are two quick bumper promos I edited together for NewsCenter5 on WMAQ Channel 5 featuring some spacey "glowing" effects on both Linda Yu and Mike Jackson. Looks very "Xanadu-esque".

These both aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, November 23rd 1980.
