: A Visit to the Empire Transmitters at Daventry

in company with L. W. HAYES
Preceded by a Historical and Descriptive
Account of the Scene
(An Electrical Recording of a programme heard yesterday by Empire Listeners) The story of the development of the Empire transmitters at Daventry began near the close of 1932, when the test transmissions took place under the control of L. W. Hayes. The first idea was to divide the Empire up into five zones, but since October, 1933, there have been six periods. Mr. Hayes is head of the Overseas and Engineering Information Department at Broadcasting House, and represents the BBC at the Union International de Radiodiffusion. Before he was associated with the Empire service he was Foreign Liaison Engineer. During the war he specialised in wireless interception in Salonika, South Russia, and the Middle East.


Unknown: L. W. Hayes.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
