The First Broadcast

by Paul Kerensa

-

The Battle for the Beeb in 1922

From British Comedy Award-winning writer (Miranda, Not Going Out, TFI Friday), Paul Kerensa

100 years ago:

Two rival voices in The Marconi Company unite art and science to create British broadcasting. Arthur Burrows seeks to inform and educate. Peter Eckersley just wants to entertain. 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.
