3 Days to Go before TVW’s 50th Annversary special.

50 years ago on October 16, 1959 West Australians took part in an historic occasion. A single moment altered forever the way we watched the world.

    The video footage of the “Canteen being unpacked” – can anyone confirm if it’s George Briggs (my great uncle)?

    Quentin…..
    Yes it certainly is George Briggs….What great memories I have of this character…..An absolute rogue but also the perfect gentlemen.
    Many are the times of eventually returning to the studio after chasing all day some world beating story….with no lunch…nothing to drink….But George was always there to save you at the end of the day
    Cheers…Peter Goodall
