HC Deb 14 May 1952 vol 500 cc122-3W
63. Mr. Grenfell

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he will bring forward the opening of the service for television in Wales, so as to include the period of the National Eisteddfod and the Welsh Festival in August.

64. Mr. Gower asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether the date for the opening of Wenvoe television transmitter may be advanced to the first week of August next to synchronise with the Welsh National Eisteddfod.


Mr. The opening date is a matter for the B.B.C., who do not, on present progress, think it possible that the station can be opened before 15th August. Quite apart from this fact, there would be very great technical difficulties in transmitting direct from Aberystwyth to Wenvoe.
