Speech by Sir EDWARD T. CAMPBELL , M.P.,
Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Postmaster General, at the formal opening of Telephone
The opening of Telephone House, Edinburgh, very appropriately falls within Telephone Week. In this building the sales, accounts, and traffic departments have been brought together. The East of Scotland district, of which Telephone House is the Head Office, extends from Newcastleton in the South to Blair Atholl in the North, and embraces in whole or in part eleven counties. Telephone House is responsible for 231 exchanges, 1,110 call offices, 41,000 exchange lines, 63,000 stations, 40,000 quarterly accounts, and tickets totalling over 10 millions.

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.
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.
