The Details

On November 14th 1922, the British Broadcasting Company transmitted its first wireless programmes to some thirty thousand listeners. The enthusiasm, skill, dedication and sheer pioneering spirit of those early years quickly established the radio as a pivotal part of our everyday lives. The BBC has remained true to its original ethos: to inform, educate and entertain its audience.

Our unique album captures the flavour of ten decades of broadcasting through the best-loved signature tunes to those memorable programmes from both radio and TV as well as the voices of notable personalities.

It’s a memory-laden treasury. Each signature tune will instantly recall the programme it introduced. Classic radio programmes such as ‘Paul Temple’, ‘Two-Way Family Favourites’, ‘Dick Barton’ and, of course, ‘The Archers’. And from TV, who will ever forget ‘What’s My Line’, ‘Juke Box Jury’, ‘Z Cars’, ‘Dr Finlay’s Casebook’ and we come bang-up-to-date with the dramatic music that introduces ‘The Apprentice’. More than two hours of iconic musical souvenirs.
