Spectrum for 18 March 2012

From Spectrum, 12:10 pm on 18 March 2012

Forty years ago to the day, 18 March 1972, the first Spectrum documentary was broadcast. Jack Perkins helped Alwyn Owen launch a human interest series which was designed as a counterbalance to the current affairs content of National Radio. Owen and Perkins briefly recall Spectrum's early days and replay 'Two Wellington Childhoods', first broadcast in 1972.
