NBN Channel 3, began broadcasting in Newcastle on from it’s Mosbri Crescent studio’s on 4th March 1962.
The first program to air on launch night from 6PM was a taped welcome from then Postmaster General, Charles Davidson, a tour of the station then followed.
A look inside the former NBN Television gallery at Mosbri Crescent, photo taken in 2014 during a set of storms which left Newcastle and Sydney homes without power.
As you can see via the auto cue system on screen the script confirms this, I can recall having my first jot coffee in two days here at NBN Studios.
