Not the 6 o’clock News

27Jan13

NZ TV1 has surprised with the title of their new post Holmes, post Sainsbury, post  elongated 6pm News  glass magazine offering. It is called Seven Sharp*. Most media mavens had incorrectly picked Right Now It’s 7 o’clock.

It still looks as if it will be a  7 o’clock shadow of what has gone before, in more recent and especially in more distant times, offering an in-shallow look at unimportant issues, unlike the classic TV news clips below.*
