For the most of me, I'd want to explore things aren't common to many. I hate being in the status quo in watching TV news, so I had to look for alternatives.
What I was fascinated about the BBC's style of presentation is their seemingly direct yet catchy view of news that is definitely at par with the international arena. However, what I was really curious about was the design of its sets, its graphics and the theme music with an element that is so distinctive of the network. Take a look at this clip of BBC World News taken in 2009.
European-designed sets tend to be eye-candy to the world arena. American-style sets, on the other hand, only fascinate the American-influenced society. Sadly, Filipinos are caught up with it.

In Part Two of the series, we compare different news graphics and let's observe how Filipinos prefer lots of info on their screen.
