The Story of Pye
BBC 100th Anniversary Exhibition - "Radio Enters the Home"
NOW EXTENDED UNTIL 17th DECEMBER 2023
The exhibition is included in the normal Museum entrance fee.
Tony Barnfield of Cambridge Talking News visited the new exhibition prior to its opening in order to interview Mike Kemp, Bob Bates and Jim Smith regarding their roles in setting up this tribute exhibition to the BBC's centenary. In addition they discuss the role played by the Pye company in enabling "Radio to Enter the Home".
The discussion follows both the BBC and Pye's history in leading to this landmark, particularly during the formative 1922 to 1932 period.
The interview is available on this player - courtesy of Tony Barnfield.
