CSIRO produced its first film in 1946. It was a two-hour, five-part epic in black and white designed for a specialist audience of Commonwealth scientists meeting in London. It showed them - in the mos... moret graphic way possible at the time - the nature and extent of the research facilities of an organisation embarking on the problems of post-war reconstruction.
Within a few years, a permanent film unit was established and began to specialise in producing films for the specific audiences on particular areas of research.
By the 1960's, it became apparent that many of the films were of interest to a much wider audience. Schools, colleges and universities were beginning to introduce the audio-visual medium to the learning process and CSIRO films were in increasing demand. Makers of television programmes looked to CSIRO films for images of science not yet accessible to the public eye.
