Newsnight at 25

Newsnight turns 25 at the end of this week, and to celebrate there’s reports from some of it’s previous editors. One of the most interesting was by Ron Neil, who nominated Peter Snow’s studio based coverage of the
Falklands war in ’81-’82
.

The most startling bit in the report is the drawing of the Harrier jump jets attacking the Argentine Canberra planes, complete with ‘dakka dakka dakka’ bullet lines! It looks like something from an Eagle comic! The thing is, it’s probably just as made up as the CGi graphics news use today.

..And there’s a great bloopers page. yuk yuk yuk!
