For the past 66 years, UN Radio has stayed true to its mission of informing the world's populations.

It has come a long way from the days when it started in 1945, in a makeshift studio in Lake Success, a village outside New York City.

While the technology UN Radio is using has changed, its goals have not.

It continues to promote the universal ideals of the United Nations including peace, respect for human rights, gender equality and international law.

As it celebrates its anniversary, Derrick Mbatha spoke to Sylvester Rowe, a retired head of UN Radio and Television Services.
