Scope and content

This collection is composed of news reports (which are called bulletins) that were written every day for the 6:30 evening news show. Each box contains approximately 10 to 11 folders that represent the month of the year. They are filed in chronological order starting with 1980.

The news stories were typically written in length from a paragraph to two pages on foolscap size papers. Many bulletins have written revision or editorial notes.

The Bulletins are the English scripts read by the 6pm (and sometimes 9pm) radio newsreaders. They generally are in two parts per bulletin with an average of 5 stories per part (total approx 12-14 pages per day). Each of the two parts begins with a news headlines page.
The Bulletins contain local news, including reports on events, quotes from government officials, statements from political parties etc. Subjects include elections, court matters, education, development plans, health issues, sport, unions, weather events, fishing, cross border activities. They don’t contain international news except for nearby Pacific countries.
