Last year due to the Covis chaos I changed the intro to the 2020 thread. Things are still uncertain this year but I shall reinstate the usual intro in the hope things get back to something approaching normal as the hours roll down to the end of 2021



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?? :-rofl2



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!

@jeallen01 tells me the London fireworks have already been cancelled because of the covid situation & the potential cost if it had to be cancelled at short notice. :( There will be "a gig" in Trafalgar Square instead....... Which doesnt sound very thrilling

With restrictions being tightened in Scotland the Hogmanay events have all fallen victim to cancellations.

The New York Times Square celebrations are (currently) going ahead but scaled down & entry will have face mask, vaccination requirements, and capacity will be cut to about 25%

This looks like the tx times for our favourite Freddie Frinton sketch. Fewer showings than in some years. These are UK +1 of course.

Quite bizarrely, my Bell Ringing Band watch this in one of our members' Cinema (He has a Projector and reclaimed Stalls in an Attic room) every NYE, with a barrel of beer close to hand.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Italy announced cancellation of all outdoor celebrations at the weekend. With the increasing staff disruption to airlines it is worth keeping an eye on the government website for new rules regarding alternative travel and whether ones choice of destination will allow entry ( and subsequent exit).

CNN has also provided a list of cancellations.

With the death of Desmond Tutu a few days ago I wonder how much coverage of the smaller events Reuters will be taking this year - they have spent hours recently transmitting footage of crowds waiting to pay their respects from South Africa the last couple of days.
