TV: N is for...

News 39

SUE LAWLEY sits in a 1989 studio “reading” made-up daily news bulletins from 1939 written and recorded in 1989 but produced as if it was 1939 told from a 1989 perspective in 1939 clothes. And 1989 theme music made to sound like 1939. Bundled out to general indifference (what next: nightly news updates from Television Centre on the Black Death?) around the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two. Then the whole convoluted thing happened again in 1994 with NEWS 44 on the anniversary of D-Day.

    I remember this fairly well, especially the later ones around the 50th anniversary of VE Day, which mentioned the new child star Petula Clark!

    Sue Lawley looked quite good in period clothes, hairdo & make-up from what I remember.
