TV News ident titles created for


*Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation

Δημιουργία τίτλων ειδήσεων για την


News titles design and studio creative art direction. A. Kanavakis was responsible for the creative production of the renewed image of the newscast for the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation, including the idea of requesting Vangelis to compose the music for the titles. Unfortunately there is no archive of the titles, part of ERT’s ungratefulness. I hope some of the idea is visible from this video I discovered [The “Argiris Classic” obviously wasn’t part of it! 🙄]. Σχεδιασμός τίτλων ειδήσεων και καλλιτεχνική διεύθυνση για τη δημιουργία νέου στούντιο ειδήσεων. Ο Α. Καναβάκης ήταν υπεύθυνος για την παραγωγή της εικόνας του ανανεωμένου δελτίου ειδήσεων της Ελληνικής Ραδιοτηλεόρασης, συμπεριλαμβανομένης της ιδέας να ζητήσει από τον Βαγγέλη Παπαθανασίου να συνθέσει τη μουσική των τίτλων. Δυστυχώς δεν υπάρχει αρχείο των τίτλων, μέρος της αγνωμοσύνης της ΕΡΤ. Ελπίζω κάποια από την ιδέα να είναι ορατή από αυτό το βίντεο που ανακάλυψα [Προφανώς το “Argiris Classic” δεν αποτελεί μέρος του σήματος! 🙄].

This post is dedicated of course to Vangelis, who is no longer among us. • Αφιερώνεται στον Βαγγέλη Παπαθανασίου [Vangelis], που δεν είναι πια μαζί μας.

    1. Thank you, Tim! I wish I could find the original recording of it. It was quite impressive at the time and the studio setup was also very nice. 😉

    1. Ah, thank you, Liz. I wish we’d kept a copy of it so I didn’t have to resort to something of such poor quality [not to mention the …argiris watermark!] 😉
