    Background: You are never too young to start a TV service". That is the belief of these young Australian who have started GSV Channel Five in a backyard garage at East Cokleigh, near Melbourne, Australia.

    The floor manager gives his cue, and a young newsreader brings the very latest details of events at home and abroad to all in the viewing areas.

    There's no shortage of talent for this TV station, in spite of the fact that its viewers are restricted to studio audiences. The whole project was the idea of 13 year-old Graham Gould, his young brother and a friend.

    Regular sessions include children's programmes, variety and the usual attractions of a genuine television station.

    They built their own equipment in three weeks after studying pictures of the more expensive reality. The result was amazingly realistic in detail.

    It doesn't produce a picture, but then it's a camera that never gives technical worries. Now it's hit parade time, and another young entertainer comes on to keep the show alive.

    A young slant on television in this junior backyard studio, in Melbourne.
