  • Description

    The ninth Commonwealth Broadcasting Conference opened in Nairobi on Tuesday (October 17), with delegates from almost forty broadcasting organisations attending.

    The President of the Republic of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta, addressed the delegates at the official opening ceremony and stressed the necessity of using broadcasting facilities for the exchange of ideas and the sharing of knowledge.

    He also warned delegates that the same facilities had been used "to sow hatred and misunderstanding", and advised delegates to find ways in which national governments and world bodies could be influenced to prevent such abuses.

    The conference was scheduled to last for twelve days, and was to discuss most aspects of radio and television at both management and engineering levels.
