The movie, a volunteer effort by cameraman Grant Findlay, screened for the first time in Dunedin last night.

Celebrating the station's quirky 95 year history, the documentary details what could be described as a survival story.

"It's battled lack of volunteers, lack of funds, and even artists who tried to burn down the station transmitter," Director Grant Findlay told 1 NEWS.

The documentary will be playing a short season at Dunedin's Rialto Cinema.

The station will next be aiming to celebrate their centenary milestone in five years.
