Foreword and Index

The Power House
The Power House - drawing by W. Baylis Allen
The Regional Scheme, for providing a broadcast service over the United Kingdom, consists of a number of stations, each containing two high-power transmitters.

Thus in each Region two different programmes will be available at sufficient strength for reception on inexpensive apparatus.

Furthermore, over the greater part of the total area served by these stations, the strength of the two transmitters will be similar to a sufficient degree to ensure that each programme can be listened to without interference from the other, when using the simplest types of receiver.

The first step towards the realization of this scheme was the erection of the experimental transmitter at Daventry known as 5GB. Based on the experience gained by this and other means, the Engineering Branch of the B.B.C prepared a specification for a complete Regional Station.

The first station to be built in accordance with this plan is now in full operation at Brookmans Park, and a description of it is contained in the following pages.
