MAF's Metric Moments
14 Tales for Radio by Bill White

The lighter side of farm metrics with MAF's Bill White.

In 1972 New Zealand was changing to using the metric system of measurements.

To aid the rural community with this change, the Radio Unit, Information Services, Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries, Wellington, New Zealand, produced a series of short radio public service announcements with a light-hearted theme.

Radio Heritage Foundation projects and activities connect radio, popular culture, history and heritage.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
