HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 c216W
95. Mr. Pounder

asked the Postmaster-General on what date in 1966 it is hoped to have B.B.C.2 television available in Northern Ireland; and to which areas of the Province this service will initially be available.

Mr. Benn

The B.B.C. UHF station at Divis is expected to open in the autumn. They will let the hon. Member know what coverage they expect the station to attain. It should, I understand, bring B.B.C.2 to nearly a million people in Belfast and the eastern half of the Province.
