Beginning of Radio Singapore and TV Singapura

Radio in Singapore started on 4 Jan 1959. Soon after the PAP were swept into power and today still holds the Government ..

TV started in 15 Feb 1963. These two milestones were very significant for Singapore a both the institutions were heavily used to explain Government 's polices durings its formative years,

Both events were captured very well in SBC's documentary series  ..Diary of a Nation produced in 1988.
It is worth to take a look at the events again here on Youtube

Watching them again brought up some old memories especially with colleagues from the studios and personalities like the late Vernon Palmer/
