SUMMARY : Until the creation of the T.V. Film Unit and T.V. Singapore in 1962 and 1963, the Singaporean Public Relations Office recorded a few attempts at official filmmaking, the impact that these films could have on the population was not lost on the Colonial government. This paper chronicles how the Singaporean government moved from reliance on the Malaya Film Unit in the 1950s to contracting with the commercial production company The Cathay Organisation, and finally establishing their own Unit and television service in early 1963.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
