International Radio in War and Peace


Some introductory words on the nature of the Englishman, especially from a foreign view. Beating the Germans on the air waves and since then, The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) running an international broadcasting service far greater than any that the world has ever known. A "very rough, highly impressionistic sketch of the coverage and influence which the BBC international service had achieved by the war's end." That sketch coming out of four incidents that happened to the speaker in recent weeks. Programming with the CBC. An illustration of the size and the coverage of the BBC's international service. The issue of sponsorship on radio. The BBC about to resume its television service, and shortly afterwards to extend it to the big centres outside of London, following a cessation of service during the war. The possible pattern of post-war developments. International exchanges to be based on a two-way exchange. Three important aspects of such exchanges. Comparing radio audiences in Britain and in North America. Circumstances which limit Overseas material on the BBC. The hard work ahead.
