David Hendy: 100 Years of the BBC

Media historian David Hendy looks back on a century of hustle and bustle at a defining cultural institution. The BBC: A People’s History delves into the archives to share the stories of typists and runners, presenters and foreign correspondents from the corporation’s radical beginnings, through the war, into ubiquity. Vivid characters and extraordinary anecdotes are shared with Sam Knight to mark Auntie’s 100th birthday.
