25 Years of Television - Part One

Television (Full Length) – 1985

It’s hard to imagine our way of life before the box turned up in our living rooms 25 years ago. There’ve been enormous changes since then, one of them the fact that we now watch an average of 23 hours of a week of television. Television has influenced and reflected the changes of the past 25 years ... Tonight I’d like to take you back to 60s and early 70s, to the single channel NZBC days. They began officially on June 1st 1960 in Auckland.
