The romance of the radio telegraph service

A short film:  From Back Blocks To High Seas – the use of wireless telegraphy in the 1930s.

We have an extensive collection of the type of technology used to provide services such as featured in this 1930s documentary about communication to and from New Zealand. See the link to this You Tube clip just added to our ‘Communications” page on our website here.

This is a NZ Government film scanned to 2K from a 16mm combined B/W reduction print. Film clip courtesy Archives New Zealand.
