The Senior News – October 2009

Posted by ken On October - 16 - 2009

Page 10 of the October 2009 issue of The Senior News features an article by Annie Lee about our web page team.

This gives credit to the many former management and staff who have contributed photos and stories.


Throughout the past 8 months, we have also been in constant contact with TVW Promotions Manager Jill Glass and TVW Producer and COS Sadie Purser. Access to TVW’s photo archives has been invaluable, as has the continuous stream of unique photos taken by former staff.

The support of key people such as Darcy Farrell, who is a walking taking encyclopaedia on TVW’s glory days, has been most valued. Not only can Darcy recall names, places, events and times, with incredible ease, but he has kept a remarkable collection of TVW memorabilia in pristine condition, dating back to 1959.

The recording of events over the previous 5 decades would be much poorer if it were not for the photos, newspaper clippings and memories of the many people who lived it.

The support of Max Bostock, Kevin Campbell, Bill McKenzie and Greg Byrne has been most valued too, as we feel that it gives our project some credibility knowing that key TVW people approve.

    I have just caught up with this website. What a blast from the past. It brings back great memories. The beginning of tv was fun (not like now when it is run like a bank). Great to see my old friend Gordie McColl and to hear my wonderful boss Darcy is still going strong. Ray and I are still going strong here in Sydney. Unfortunately we did not hear about the celebrations last year, sorry we missed it.
