1969: First colour TV transmission in NZ
Location: HOES Majoribanks St., Wellington
Clyde Cunningham on left, Brian Cosnett on right.
The panel with the knobs is the CCU for an EMI2001 colour camera.
A temporary microwave link was set up to send the signal to Mt. KauKau transmitter site. Colour bars were transmitted for a few minutes but we didn't have a colour receiver to see the transmission.
The photo was taken by John Dagg.
A visitor to the site sent some information relating to Brian Cosnett:
There is a memorial stone for Brian Cosnett under a large tree at the Avalon backlot (Still there as of Jan 2018). I came here to put a face to the name on the mold covered plaque.
