ABC News Directions was the name for a program that consisted of town hall meetings, talk shows and documentaries that usually had a religious or spiritual theme. It was shown on sunday mornings from the 1970’s to 1985. The theme sounds like a classic ABC News theme from that time period.
Network News Music is a website by Victor Vlam, who holds the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of news music. 1,876 hours, 2 minutes and 52 seconds. News music is rarely heard without voice-overs or fade outs to commercial, yet it leaves an impact on many people. Founded in 2002, this site is a museum for TV news themes past and present.

sounds like the theme music to This Week’s predecessor Sunday morning show ISSUES AND ANSWERS. Only Score Productions rewrote it with the ABC News famous four-note music logo.
I believe this arrangement was used in the last few months or so of Issues and Answers’ run before This Week replaced it.
