Event details

Discover the site of the first official public television broadcast in Aotearoa in this special guided tour, as we celebrate sixty years of TV in the building where it all began. With a Neo-Romanesque facade and Art Deco interiors, view the spectacular architecture first hand, listen to fascinating stories about the building's television history and journey down through the corridors into Studio One, once the biggest broadcasting studio in the country.

Presented by: Gus Fisher Gallery
