HC Deb 17 December 1929 vol 233 c1241W

asked the Postmaster-General what call-sign is being allocated to the second station at Brookman's Park; and when it is anticipated that a full alternative programme will be transmitted from this station?


It has been agreed that, for the time being, the London call sign "2 LO" should cover both transmitters at the Brookman's Park Station. I understand that when two programmes are transmitted simultaneously they will be referred to as "London Regional" and "London National" respectively. The tests which are now being carried out in the transmission of alternative programmes for short periods will be continued for some weeks; but the British Broadcasting Corporation are not yet able to state the date on which they expect to be in a position to transmit full alternative programmes from the station.
