Is the Music of News Universal?

Having worked quite extensively researching news programmes on TV in both England and Brazil in recent years i found it strange to be looking for some examples of news programmes in Paraná, Brasil and to hear the opening music to the daily news programme SBT Paraná. It is exactly the same music as has been used for more than 30 years by the BBC's flagship news programme 'Newsnight'. It made me question whether despite our cultural differences and our unique relationships to TV news programming, the Music of News is universal?
