MOST OUTRAGEOUSLY BEVELLED TIMECHECK CLOCK

Winner: ABC News This Morning, 1984



What exactly was behind the mad craze for chucking an outrageous bevel behind every bit of caption text on mid-80s US television? It looked garish, clumsy and all-round nasty. Just because you've found the setting for it in Quantel doesn't mean you have to do it.

CHEAPEST TITLE SEQUENCE


Winner: WTOP Washington, 1972



All the budget went on the demented drawing of the donkey and the elephant, it seems. Did they just fire some letraset out of a cannon?

BEST DESK

Winner: Cleveland City Camera News, 1976



That is fantastic, isn't it? It's like they're about to anchor Olympic ice skating or something. If the BBC has a desk like this tonight, we'd be absolutely delighted.

MOST UNFLATTERING PORTRAITS OF CANDIDATES

Winner: CBS, 1992



Poor old Ross Perot.
