In this comprehensive audio compilation of what was achieved in the first 50 years of the Dutch external radio broadcaster, part four of our eight-part story of Radio Netherlands recalls the opening of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and the visit of David Ben Goerion to the Netherlands. Radio Netherlands moves from old studios in the Bothalaan in the centre of Hilversum to a Purpose-built studio complex in the North of Hilversum. Reporter van der Steen does an interview with the architects. We also recall thoughts about the European Common Market, the Berlin wall and the assassination of President Kennedy.
This look at the station in the early 1960’s was originally broadcast in June 1997.The programme was written and presented by Pete Myers with additional research by Luc Lucas.
