HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c64W
109. Mr. Hayman

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he will have tests made for the siting of a television mast on the high ground in the region of Hensbarrow Beacon, so that mid and West Cornwall, where the bulk of the county's population lives, may get good reception when coverage is to be afforded to Cornwall and South Devon.

Mr. Gammans

The B.B.C. informs me that a station in the region of Hensbarrow would not give a satisfactory television service to large parts of Devon outside the effective range of Wenvoe. A site now being tested in South Devon would enable many more people to be served, including those in East and mid-Cornwall.
