Datebook: November 14 - BBC Begins Broadcasting 90 Years Ago

Nov 14, 2012

On the day after today in 1922, The Daily News reported "For the first time in history, news was broadcast in England last night by the British Broadcasting Company." Director of Programmes Arthur Burrows read the two news bulletins from the Marconi House in London. He later remarked that it was a great test of nerves. But we're glad he did it.
