A day across the BBC - 54 years ago.

This film was made in 1960 and was republished by the Alexandra Palace Television Society who have preserved many old films about the BBC. This one covers a lot of the work of the BBC External Services at Bush House - there wasn't much going on in broadcasting house on the domestic service overnight. Like many BBC publicity films of this era, it was all heavily scripted. I love the editorial discussion about whether the various European language services will get a short talk today or a discussion!
