Radio Televisyen Malaysia is a Malaysian public broadcaster. It has 36 radio and 4 television stations in Malaysia, based in Kuala Lumpur. RTM is the first broadcaster in Malaysia and celebrates its 70th anniversary on 1 April 2016.
RTM started broadcasting radio on 1 April 1946, and television on 28 December 1963. The first two radio stations are Radio Malaya (in Malay) and The Blue Network (in English). The transmitters were located first in Singapore and later in Kuala Lumpur (opened in 1950).
With the independence of Malaya on 31 August 1957 Radio Malaya was split into two separate stations; the original studios in Singapore was taken over by a new station called Radio Singapura and Radio Malaya moved to Kuala Lumpur going on air from the new location on 1 January 1959. It would be later renamed Radio Malaysia on 16 September 1963 with the transmissions beginning with its trademark words Inilah Radio Malaysia (This is Radio Malaysia) on the day the Malaysia of today was born. Television services under the name Malaysia Televisyen or Malaysia Television (Malaysia TV) started on 28 December 1963 in time for the national New Year celebrations in Kuala Lumpur and regional telecasts in the Klang Valley in Selangor state, with its first studios being located in Jalan Ampang. The then 10-month-old Television Singapura (launched on 16 February 1963) became part of Malaysia Televisyen as its state station for Singapore viewers, a role served until 1965, when Singapore became independent.
Radio and TV operations merged in 1968 as the new Angkasapuri headquarters was inaugurated. Thus, Radio Malaysia and Televisyen Malaysia's identities merged to become Radio Televisyen Malaysia (Radio Television Malaysia, RTM) in 1969. A second TV station opened also in the same year as its rebranding, and in 1971 Radio Malaysia became the first radio station to broadcast 24 hours a day, nationwide, thus becoming Rangkaian Nasional (National Network) in the process.
RTM began broadcasting in colour since 1978 in Peninsular Malaysia and 1980 in Sabah and Sarawak.
Between 1972 and 1999, RTM shared time with TV Pendidikan, the national education channel, in the daytime. TV1 introduced daytime transmissions in 1994 thus resulting to TV Pendidikan ceased broadcasting on TV1, while TV2 introduced daytime transmissions in 2000. TV1 broadcast overnight many times since the early 1990s, but daily 24-hour transmissions did not come until 2003, which was later cancelled. Permanent 24-hour broadcasting was introduced in 2006 on TV2, and 2012 on TV1.

The National Mosque of Malaysia is a mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It has a capacity for 15,000 people and is situated among 13 acres (53,000 m2) of gardens. The original structure was designed by a three-person team from the Public Works Department: UK architect Howard Ashley, and Malaysians Hisham Albakri and Baharuddin Kassim. The engineer in charge of the construction of the mosque, which commenced in 1963 was Antony Morris. It was built on the site of a church, the Venning Road Brethren Gospel Hall, which had stood there since 1922 but was appropriated by the Malaysian government. The mosque is a bold and modern approach in reinforced concrete, symbolic of the aspirations of a then newly independent Malaysia.
Its key features are a 73-metre-high (240 ft) minaret and a 16-pointed star concrete main roof. The umbrella, synonymous with the tropics, is featured conspicuously – the main roof is reminiscent of an open umbrella, the minaret's cap a folded one. The folded plates of the concrete main roof are a creative solution to achieving the larger spans required in the main gathering hall. Reflecting pools and fountains spread throughout the compound.
