The Rise & Fall Of Broadcasting House



Thanks to Paul Rawdon reporting on DX Dialog, here is an podcast on the history of our very own “Broadcasting House”. In 1963, Broadcasting House  in Wellington opened. It was the nerve centre of the country’s radio networks and home to the Capital’s stations. Its Japanese-made technical equipment was state-of-the-art and its studios world-standard. It was demolished in 1997 to make way for an extension of parliament that never happened. In 1972, Spectrum’s Jack Perkins recorded a day’s activities in Broadcasting House. This rebroadcast of ‘Sound Around the Clock’ marks 50 years since the opening of Broadcasting House.
