Episode 59 is the final part of our trilogy of info-dashes through the first British Broadcasting Century. Here we span 1988-2022: the digital years.
Enjoy hearing from experts, those who were there and contributions from you marvellous podcast listeners. (Part 1 was more archive-heavy - but rights issues get trickier as we get more recent - oh and do go back and listen to part 1 (1922-54) and part 2 (1955-87)).
Some excerpts are from longer interviews that you'll hear on the podcast soon (eg. ex Radio 1 boss Johnny Beerling, sitcom star Jeffrey Holland). Some are from previous episodes (go back and hear Lee Mack or Chris Jarvis). Some have been specially sent in for this episode (thanks Jon Dear, Alan Stafford, Dr Andrea Smith). And some are on loan from my other podcast, A Paul Kerensa Podcast - formerly known as The Heptagon Club (eg. Tim Vine, Miranda Hart).
In the below list, asterisked names are from that latter podcast - head to podfollow.com/paulkerensa and scroll back to older episodes to hear those fuller interviews...
YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO:

- Do share our episodes on social media - we're on Twitter and Facebook.
- The novel based on this podcast is due out in March 2023: Auntie and Uncles: The Bizarre Birth of the BBC, 1919-23: https://amzn.to/3hxe4lX
- We're nothing to do with the BBC - we're talking about them (and others), not with them, as such.
Do stay subscribed, because we return soon in 2023, with the finer details of the 1923 BBC, including Savoy Hill, Women's Hour and the Radio Times. Some great stories to tell, with great guests.
But first, next time: The History of Religious Broadcasting, including three wise men, plus clips so rare, I don't think the BBC have them.
Thanks for listening, sharing and/or being part of this. Couldn't do it without you.
And happy centenary, Auntie Beeb!
