Stills

The ABC is over 75 years old, yet its eclectic Stills Collection pre-dates its inception by a decade with images of 1920s radio stations 2FC and 2BL.

Through its involvement with TV Times magazine in the 1960s and 70s, the ABC holds publicity shots from some of the great early TV productions – Bonanza, Gunsmoke, I Love Lucy, Number 96 and Young Talent Time.

Yet the Collection’s unique feature is a detailed insider’s view on the magic moments in the history of radio and television generally, and the ABC in particular.

From nostalgic sepia prints of a 1930s radio crew to digitised images from yesterday’s news event, the ABC Stills Collection is an extensive and invaluable photographic record.
