HC Deb 31 May 1961 vol 641 c22W
Mr. Russell

asked the Postmaster-General how the strength of signals of broadcasting in the British Broadcasting Corporation's overseas service received in Africa and Asia compares with that of Moscow Radio and Cairo Radio.

Mr. Bevins

In many parts of Africa and Asia the British Broadcasting Corporation's signal is at times as good as or better than that from Moscow Radio or Cairo Radio, though the latter are able at some times and in some areas to give a stronger signal because they are operating from a better geographical position for such areas.
