HC Deb 29 March 1927 vol 204 cc1044-5
60. Colonel DAY

asked the Postmaster-General when the regional scheme for broadcasting on higher wave-lengths will be completed so that listeners will be able to obtain alternative programmes on higher wave-lengths from the Daventry Broadcasting Station?


The British Broadcasting Corporation inform me that they propose to carry out experiment at Daventry at an early date, and when these have been completed they may be in a position to submit proposals for the establishment of regional high-power stations?

Colonel DAY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say on what wave lengths these experiments will be carried out?


I do not know that it is definitely settled, but the idea is to have two wave lengths, one of 1,600 and another of 400.
