Ahhh...those were the days. Remember around June 2013 sitting around my house after school exams and my relatively strict dad said for the first time "Do what you want, stay up as long as you want just relax and do nothing; watch TV".


If you're wondering what this has to do with CNN Hong Kong, It just brought the nostalgia of the shows with David Wartnaby "Live from Hong Kong, with Andrew Stevens and Patricia Wu" at 23:00GMT 


Really love the music CNN International does for their promos, third party advertisers, and programmes especially the tune for Global Exchange with JDefterios from 2011-2013 . Still wish I could get a HD version of the promo. Downloaded one in 2012 that xgrinch had but it's only in 480p. Wish I had the 'latest' revamped one at the time in 2013 from my cable TV was HD.

Usually when the clocks are set back in Europe , CNN I's European line up shows up one hour later than the time it normally is in the  US, Like  TWRN at 4PMET instead of 3pmet,  but so far noticed that Amanpour and State of America are on at  then normal times for the US or one hour earlier for Europe.  


I do remember that when Global Exchange with JDefterios was on back in 2011-2013, I'd miss the entire show since I used to come back from school at 16:00GMT, the regular airing time during the year as CNN would bring the show at 15:00PM, one hour earlier.


Though I do believe CNN Abu Dhabi made adjustments by airing the show an hour later...not sure if the clocks change in the Middle East. 


But I'm sure that pales in comparison to the jihadists that got blown up because they forgot to adjust their bombs with DST. :mad:  :rofl:

What does this mean and how do I do it?  




Doing a Google Search pops up that Photobucket is 'holding customers ransom'. According to an article I read, they've fallen to greed and you need to pay an annual fee. :grumpy:

In regards to production music, do BBC World News, CNNI and CNBC share a lot of the same music? I've heard a lot of tunes used across all three channels and I've usually found most of them on Audionetwork.


However, one that still intrigues me is an advert that aired exclusively on CNNI back in 2013 sponsored by the European Patent Office for the "2013 European Inventor" awards that year in May. I believe it was in association with "Make, Create Innovate", the show hosted by Nick Glass. I forgot about the ad until I became a frequent viewer of BBC World News and then, I saw the same tune but a shorter version used in one of their breakbumpers


CNN Ad - "European Inventor Award 2013"



CNN Ad - "European Inventor Award 2014"



BBC Ad - 10 second breakbumper
