Parliamentary Broadcasting and ABC Studio
These tiny rooms were home to the ABC’s parliamentary broadcast team from 1946 to 1988. They broadcast the debates, drama and day-to-day business of the parliament on the radio, giving Australians a chance to hear democracy in action.
A studio and crew was added in the mid-70s – it was a tight fit. Journalists had to shuffle past the sound desk and dodge cables on their way to the studio, just big enough for 3 people.
