Broadcasting House 1963-1997
While tidying up my office the other day I came across this booklet on the history of Broadcasting House, Wellington. It was a sad day when it was demolished in 1997 (to make room for MPs offices, which never actually happened). This was an act of vandalism, because there were 4 large studios, the likes of which will not be rebuilt. So, if these walls could talk... they would not have anything nice to say about politicians.

Dear Richard: I would like to use the photograph of the demolition of Broadcasting House in a limited-run book on the history of that part of Sydney Street area which includes Town Acres 502 and 503 - originally the Mantell properties. I'd be grateful if you could grant permission to use the photograph for this purpose; if you do, appropriate acknowledgement will of course be made in the caption. With thanks, Peter

As a former employee of the NZBC and all of its derivatives it was a black day in history when this world class studio facility was demolished. I both worked and attended courses in this building and the quality of the equipment and the audio that came out of it and went to air was first class. I for one ended up with one of the control desks from BH and to this day is still running and used on air at Radio Woodville. This station has used it for 17 years.
