More or less rectangular in shape, it fronted on Romaine Street and took up the entire block between Orange Drive and Sycamore Avenue. source Barlett & Steele 1979 pg. 210
Inside, the building was as drab and spartan as it's exterior. The first floor was dark and eerie. Along a concrete hallway running from one end to the other was a series of unused film laboratories and cutting rooms and several walk-in vaults dating to the 1930s. ... In one air-conditioned, humidity controlled vault were all the negatives and prints of his movies, as well as thousands of feet of outtakes. Source Barlett & Steele 1979 pg. 212
So unless they somehow shipped this monumental piece of film to Australia, after creating a flawless 5km piece of film, and the film didn't have a single issue in shipping, nor in unpacking and reassembling in Australia, some 12000km away, they then would have had a one chance broadcast...
Some idea of the significance of this total footage can be obtained from this comparison : Normally, a typical feature film lasting 90 minutes will have 8,000 feet of film. The average producer would shoot ten times as much film as he is going to need and make a selection from it. The director of Doctor Zhivago used 20 times as much as he needed. Hughes shot almost 300 times as much as was required. Source Albert Gerber, "Bashful Billionaire" 1967 pg. 129

Although there's no evidence that President Nixon ever met Hughes, the two went way back. In 1956, when Nixon was Dwight Eisenhower's vice president, Hughes made a controversial $205,000 loan to Nixon's businessman brother, Donald. It raised eyebrows, because for years, Hughes had been a major defense contractor, doing business with the government. Even a Hughes confidante would later say: "The whole thing had a bad smell to it."
