“This is the BBC…” – or it was.

100 years ago, two rival voices in The Marconi Company unite art and science to create British broadcasting. Arthur Burrows wants to inform and educate. Peter Eckersley just wants to entertain. The result? The BBC. Before Reith, this ‘BBC two’ duel for the soul of British broadcasting – but who will give The First Broadcast?

Based on the podcast The British Broadcasting Century (podfollow.com/bbcentury)
