Here's a note from good friend Mun Chor Seng, a Singapore television news photographer, who used to accompany the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew during the former PM's trips around the region. He explains in detail the workings of a well-protected area at the former MediaCorp, Caldecott Hill.
Thank you Chor Seng.
MediaCorp has completely left Caldecott Hill and moved to their new office in Star Avenue on 27 March, 2017. The foundation stone for the new building was laid on 8 November 2013. The new Campus will be home to 2,800 staff and a State-of-the-Art, 1,500 seats Broadcasting Performance Theatre.
The Caldecott Old Timers (COT) Club organised a final tour of Caldecott Broadcast Centre (CBC). I would like to include the following shots taken that day for your reference.
Whether you are a VIP, an international pop star, a band boy with a guitar, a postman with a package to deliver, or specially invited guests, anyone entering the premises has to go through the same protocol.
At Mediacorp Star Avenue today, security is tighter still.
