I noticed that the Miami background for the Weekend/Business Travel Forecast is said to be from 1993. That was the backdrop at the time of Hurricane Andrew. IIRC, they were still using that one in early 1993, but they changed it at some point a little later that same year.

Is that a comment, question, or complaint? :thinking:

I guess that would qualify as a comment. BTW, Miami used that backdrop as early as late 1991, FYI. In 1993 they changed the backdrop to the one with the swimming pool.

Interesting. I've often thought it would be cool (but likely impossible) to pin down dates of use for things like that.

It shouldn't be so hard.  So long as there's video evidence that can be dated, then it's pretty easy to realize what background was used when.

Almost all of my images and videos are dated. How would I be able to determine a start and end date from that? :hmm:

In this case, just put 1992, rather than 1993, or 1991-1993 would be better. Then, you can look at BTF videos on you tube and it'll tell you the year this BTF aired, then look at other videos of it, that will give you a hint.
