Australian Television in 1962

Broadcasting is one of the possible themes for this week’s Sepia Saturday which set me thinking about the early days of television in Melbourne.  Television came to Melbourne in time for the 1956 Olympic Games.

This is a photo I took of our television set in 1962 when Victor Borge was very popular, developed and printed by yours truly.  It was taken on a Yashica twin lens reflex.  Do you remember Victor Borge, with his wonderful blend of piano playing and comedy.

And this photo was taken the previous month of the same stand-alone black and white television,   when colour television and  remote controls were only dreamed of.18-5-1962For a nostalgic trip for Australian readers (well, some of them ) earlier in the same year saw the presentation of the 4th Annual TV Logie Awards.  I had to dig deep to remember some of these names.

And finally here is a short clip of the two delightful Gold-winning singers

See what other interesting ideas  people find in this image of broadcasting from the top of a bus at Sepia Saturday.
