Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin! British Comedy Award-Winning writer and comedian Paul Kerensa (BBC’s Miranda, Not Going Out, Top Gear) informs, educates and entertains us about the origin story of the BBC, hilariously recreating its first broadcasts based on his extensive research.

Experience the first drama, comedy, children's music and much more on century-old gramophone players, radios & jokes, plus rare clips & re-enactments.

Paul writes for the present day BBC (The Now Show, The News Quiz) but he’s happiest in 1922, when the BBC had 30,000 listeners but only 4 employees.
