The Palace of Engineering
A short description of the building and contents and interviews with some of the officials by P. I. Keith Murray from the Empire Exhibition (Scotland)
The Exhibition's largest building. the Palace of Engineering, has been designed to illustrate the romance of iron and steel and contains exhibits ranging from nails to enormous engines. As may be expected at a Clydeside Exhibition, one section is devoted to models of the ships that have made the name of the river famous in every port of the world.
The Pavilion forms the westerly wall of the Exhibition greatest promenade--the broad expanse formed by Dominions Avenue and Colonial Avenue, which are separated by an artificial lake. At the other end of this promenade is another large Pavilion, one of the two Palaces of Industry.
P. I. Keith Murray , who is well known to listeners for his lively and informative outside broadcasts, was an engineer before he joined the programme staff of the BBC in Scotland. He is carrying out two hundred outside broadcasts from the Empire Exhibition, and it is not surprising that some people have suggested he should have a Pavilion at Bellahouston Park all to himself.

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.
