BBC: History
1920s:
- This marked the end of the independent radio
enthusiasts. The first professional broadcasting
organisation was born. This was a very exciting time, as
nothing like this has ever happened before.
- In October 1922, BBC launched its first daily radio
service in London 2LO. This consisted of news, drama,
music and talks for a few hours the day
In February 1924, The Greenwich time Signal Apparatus
was created; this was a device that marked the beginning
of every hour on BBC radio. It did this by playing 6 pip
like sounds.

TELEVISION
The 1930s was the birth of television
The 1930s was the decade that changed everything in
the broadcasting and media industry.
This did not deter the BBC. The radio industry grew
stronger with the new broadcasting house in 1932.

New Broadcasting House


In 1932 a new broadcasting house was created which
changed the broadcasting industry forever.
This was a revolution as it was one of only two in Europe.
It was run by a leading team of modernists.

The type A microphone


Commercially available microphones were expensive in
the 1930s, so the BBC worked with the Marconi Company
to develop its own model.
The Type A, developed and refined over the years, has
become the classic BBC microphone as seen in period
dramas and films.

The BBC Television Service opens


The BBC was the first broadcaster in the world to provide
a regular high definition television service.
Programmes we would expect to see today such as
drama, sport, outside broadcasts, and cartoons all

featured, but not for long. The outbreak of war in 1939


brought programmes to a halt.

News comes to the TV


As interest in television grew, the demand for a dedicated
news service increased.
Normally voiced by famous commentator John Snagge,
BBC Newsreel painted a picture of the days events as a
filmed sequence of short reports.

pirate radio broadcasting services, The BBC saw fit that
they would start a new service to meet the rising

channel was launched by the BBC. This was the catalyst,
which sparked the rise in these programs, which we see
today such as: Sky.

news stories and thorough investigations.
