October 18, 1922: The BBC Is Formed

0

Today in 1922, the British Broadcasting Company was formed by British and American electrical companies. The radio station ran for just over four years before it was dissolved and its assets transferred to the non-commercial British Broadcasting Corperation, which it has been since. The BBC is the oldest national broadcasting organization in the world and the largest by number of employees.
