At Monaro Mall in 1969, Canberrans were given the opportunity to see colour television for the first time. However, it would be another six years before colour television came to Australia. Part of the display was a simulated television transmission of Commonwealth Film Unit films. These films were made about Australia for overseas audiences and were broadcast on television in Britain, Europe, United States of America and Asia.
