FROM THE ARCHIVES: The last tours of GTV-9 Richmond

Rob McKnight, Pete Smith and Peter Hitchener take you inside the iconic GTV-9 Richmond just months before it was demolished

During my time at Channel 9, I was fortunate to make a series of videos in and around GTV-9 just months before the building was torn down to make way for apartments.

When I left the network in 2013 the videos were deleted from YouTube and thought to be lost forever. But now they have been remastered for historical purposes and made available again.

Join legendary voice-over artist Pete Smith as he explains the historical significance of each location (including the bricks).

9 News presenter Peter Hicthener will take you behind the scenes of Hey Hey It’s Saturday and Millionaire Hot Seat as we run into some of the workers who made GTV-9 the special place it was.

You’ll see inside Graham Kennedy‘s dressing room and secret parts of the building even full-time employees didn’t know about.

Watch in the player below.
