Abstract
The role of the mainstream churches in contemporary Papua New Guinea media is well known. What is often less well appreciated is that Kristen Pres, Wantok, and The Time of Papua New Guinea did not spring fresh from the developments of the post-war years, but are the lineal offspring of the hand-operated presses of the 19th-century missionaries.
