I assume we will be running the usual end of year Follow the Fireworks fun on the forum?

Usual routine, tune into Auckland midnight at 1100 UK time then work our way westwards across the time zones seeing what weird & wonderful celebrations we can find, no doubt a smattering of wrinkly rockers and an awful lot of fireworks!

For those of you that havent seen the format before the usual firework highlights are

Auckland
Sydney
Taipei
Pyongyang(!) - had an excellent display in recent years
Dubai
Moscow
Berlin or one of the German cities
London

Channels are all almost all watched via FTA channels on 13E during the day, the Germans on 19E & a few news channels on 28E. There are always a few contributors chipping in with some of the other birds - eg the Ukrainians & Baltics on 5E and whatever other oddities we can find on the other birds across the European arc.

There is also the opportunity to watch the classic Dinner For One on 19E.

The Reuters news feed on 22W is also a useful one to have access to as they tend to have the full displays from main cities on.

Same procedure as every year??:D

As usual I'll close this for now & reopen it a few days before NYE

BTW - the first record I can find of Chasing Midnight here is way back in 2004, with annual occurences since 2007!

If any of the forum regulars are around NYE please drop by the thread & say hello.

@remlap does an an annual spreadsheet detailing where the main highlights have been in recent years.


One addition for this year is Alma Too which is a Kyrgyzstan news channel fta on 42E 12685H 27500 DVB-S2 which Im hoping might have some coverage from Bishkek. (+6 same as Kazahkstan)

One slight change for this years chase - we wont have our old friend Nursultan Nazerbayev as El Presidente of Kazkhstan this year - he stood down back in March.

Now as usual we will be on the look out for wrinkly rockers as we get into Europe - so please report any sightings of The Rubettes, Bonnie Tyler, Ruslana etc :D
