Dwight Steven-Boniecki

Dwight Steven-Boniecki was born in Sydney, Australia in 1969 a few months before man walked on the moon. He spent much of his childhood fascinated with space exploration - growing up in the shadow of Apollo and under the direct influence of science fiction films such as Star Wars. The latter shaping his desire to work in the film/television industry. After studying television theory at North Sydney Technical College he moved to San Diego, USA and interned at Daniels Cablevision. He returned to Australia and worked at TCN-9 before heading back to university where he majored in Psychology. Following his studies he decided that television was where he truly wanted to be and returned to the industry working for Foxtel, Australia. From there he heard about the expansion on satellite TV in Eastern Europe and jumped on a plane to work in Europe: first in Great Britain for Wizja TV, and then in Germany for CBC / RTL - where he still works today as a transmission controller. All the while, his interest in space exploration never left him. The advance of DVDs and the internet saw him revisiting the missions he recalled watching as a young child. While watching the missions again, he began to wonder about the technology behind the images he was watching, and so he began researching the television systems developed by NASA mainly to satisfy his own curiosity. To his dismay he discovered that while the information was available, it was not easy to access, and had never been comprehensively written about. He set about to change that, and ended up writing his first book, "Live TV From the Moon". Along the way he befriended many of the people who were directly involved in building the TV cameras which transmitted arguably the most important television signals ever received on planet earth -and is proud to have been able to tell their story.
