I found a really cool link to archives of NewsTrack, a privately run news show that had no channel to back then. They used to sell these tapes on VHS, and were very Tehelka style for their time. I think this was the crew that went on to make The World This Week. I'm not entirely sure of this, but given the format of their programming, it seems so. See how it always ends with an entertainment related bit?
