Dunedinites will no doubt be aware of the legacy that is Radio Dunedin, but for those of you who don't - it was launched in 1922, making it New Zealand's first ever radio station and get this, it's now the fifth oldest station in the world, even a few weeks older than the BBC. 

Its incredible 95 year history has been celebrated in a feature-length documentary covering its successes and the many challenges its faced over that time.
