The British Broadcasting Century with Paul Kerensa / Earlier... with Winifred Sayer

Listen on

Episode notes

The 1st woman on British radio! Radio's 1st professional artiste! The 1st listings! The 1st programme with a title!

Journey back to early 1920 for episode 3 of the story of pre-BBC broadcasting, and meet W.T. Ditcham, Captain H.J. Round and Winifred Sayer - the girl from the ball-bearings factory who brought song to our radio sets. 

Monday 15th June 2020 (soon! In fact, probably in the past...) Paul's doing a Facebook Live talk on The History of the BBC (basically this entire podcast series condensed into an hour), with Q&A. It's £Pay What You Want, details here or on our Facebook page.

We're here to inform, educate + entertain on the origins of the BBC, radio and life as we know it. I say 'we'. It's just me. 

Oh, and original music by Will Farmer  

Oh, and our guest is Emily Jeffery, who presents the fab Edge of England podcast.

(To be our guest, email an audio clip of your early broadcasting memories.)
