§ 41. Viscount SANDON
asked the Postmaster-General if he will suggest to the Broadcasting Company, in the interests of general education, that their programmes should begin with a short announcement of the anniversaries of the day, such as those associated with political events, science, literature, art, and the Great War?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
It is the present practice of the British Broadcasting Company to broadcast an anniversary note each evening after the second news bulletin. The note usually deals in a descriptive manner with one important event associated with the day; and the company consider that these announcements are more likely to hold the interest of listeners than a recital of a list of events.
