In the 1960s, Australia was involved in the Vietnam War which, by the early 1970s, had placed a heavy burden on the Australian economy. According to Bruce Gyngell, then head of the Seven Network, Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War also delayed the arrival of colour television in Australia.

This clip is an excerpt from Brendan Horgan's interview with Bruce Gyngell which was completed as a part of the NFSA's oral history program.
