Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
Indigenous remains to stay in State museums
Indigenous people are dismayed by a decision the current Queensland LNP government has taken not to fund a pilot program for the repatriation of ancestor remains from the Queensland Museum to their homelands for burial.
The decision could mean Indigenous people will not be able to properly farewell their ancestors and ensure their passage into the next world.
Brisbane Line reporter Steven Riggall spoke with Bob Weatherall, Chair of the Centre for Indigenous Cultural Policy.
