The Radio Ceylon building – it would have been like this when Queen Elizabeth II visited Radio Ceylon in 1954 to broadcast to the nation.

His Royal Highness, Prince Charles the Prince of Wales will be passing the iconic building – the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation formerly known as Radio Ceylon – on his way to the BMICH to open the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Colombo from 10th – 17th November 2003. People are hoping the Prince of Wales will make a historic broadcast from the SLBC building just like his mother, HRH Queen Elizabeth II who visited the station when it was known as Radio Ceylon.
HRH Queen Elizabeth’s broadcast over the airwaves of Radio Ceylon – you can see the Radio Ceylon emblem on the microphone used by Her Majesty the Queen.
