An ABC News investigation has revealed the new home is printed on paper printed on plastic sheets.
A new ABC News TV series on house prints, “House of Secrets”, will be aired on Wednesday.
The series, titled “Houses of Secrets: The Hidden Lives of Australia’s Famous Houses” is expected to air on Wednesday, May 24.
ABC TV producer John Gough told ABC Radio Melbourne house prints were used in the early days of the ABC in the 1940s and 1950s and were used for advertising.
Mr Gough said the show would delve into the story behind the house prints.
“It’s been a long time since the last ABC show, and I think we’re about to take the next step,” he said.
“We’re going to get a new look at the history of the house print and we’re going into the history and how we made these prints.”
Mr Goug said the project was not funded by the ABC.
“The ABC’s main funding is to make a TV show,” he told ABC News Breakfast.
“So we don’t get a financial benefit from the show and it’s a project that the ABC is happy to fund.”
Mr Garber said the series would be the first of its kind to examine the history behind Australia’s famous houses.
“There’s a lot of people out there that have been making these houses for a long period of time and a lot has changed in the world over the last 60 years, but we really want to understand the history, the history through to the present day,” he added.
ABC house print producer John Garber says the series will explore the history.
“We’re not going to just go back to the 1950s, we’re not coming back to where the first house prints came from,” he says.
“What we are going to do is try and tell a story about where these prints came to be and what their relationship to each other is.”
There’s no definitive story behind why these prints have been printed, so what’s interesting is to understand how they’ve been produced.
“The show is being broadcast on ABC News 24, the ABC News website, ABC Radio, ABC TV and the ABC app.
It will be available to download at ABC News.
