WNYC Presents: 100 Years of the BBC

In November of 1922, BBC radio first crackled into the homes of Londoners, who heard a brief news and weather report – read twice so listeners could take notes. It’s now the world’s largest broadcaster where it provides programming in languages from Arabic to Yoruba. Its story is chronicled in the new book “The BBC: A Century On Air,” written by David Hendy, a media historian and former BBC producer. Hendy will join Alison Stewart, host of WNYC’s live daily arts and culture show, All Of It, for a special hour-long program exploring the history of the BBC.

This special will air on Friday December 30th at 10 AM and 8 PM here on 88.3 FM KCPW.
