Countdown/celebrationSTORYLINE:New Year’s Eve is being celebrated like no other in most of the world, with pandemic restrictions limiting crowds and many people bidding farewell to a year they’d prefer to forget. New Year’s experiences varied greatly by country or city, reflecting their response to the virus itself. From Sydney and Seoul to London and New York, major cities canceled or scaled back celebrations to discourage crowds. New Zealand and Taiwan were among a handful of places without active or severe outbreaks that carried on as usual. Britain hailed its final break with the European Union, while an empty Times Square looked forward to welcoming crowds again next year.STORYLINE:===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
