Tracing its expansion from a single radio station, 2LO in London, to today's position as the most prestigious broadcasting organization in the world, the book focuses on the achievements of Lord Reith, the BBC in wartime, the growth of the World Service, the introduction of television, the Hugh Greene years, developing competition from ITV and the changes of the 1980s and 1990s. It includes a date list and a fold-out colour chart depicting the BBC's leading figures and the major political events which have influenced them and the Corporation between 1922 and 1992.
