Bruce Gyngell's famous words, 'Good evening... and welcome to television', launched the new medium in Australia on 16 September 1956.

The opening line was actually not filmed on the night due to technical difficulties; the surviving footage presented here was recreated, reportedly the following year, for TCN9 Sydney’s first anniversary special.
