Story of Radio Dunedin

SHARE

New Zealand’s longest-running radio station is the focus of a new documentary to screen in Geraldine in January.
Radio Dunedin looks at the history of the station, which began in 1922, and tells the story of the volunteer announcers who launched it and those who continue working there today.
First-time film director and long-time TV cameraman Grant Findlay has spent the past two years working on the film.
“It’s a Dunedin story, but has universal themes that people all over the country can associate with.”
The film was not just a history lesson and at the heart of it were the colourful local characters, both radio staff and listeners, he said.
“It’s more than just a station, it’s a part of Dunedin, and everyone has grown up with it.”
The documentary will play at the Geraldine Cinema for a strictly limited run from January 11.
