This chapter focuses on the British Broadcasting Corporation's (BBC) offering of a ‘extensive broadcasting’ service to meet the demand of the public. The company built eight main broadcasting stations linked by simultaneous broadcasting. It also opened relay stations in crowded industrial areas and started experimental work with a new high-powered long-wave transmitter in 1924. J.C.W. Reith regarded this extension of broadcasting facilities as a justification of the national claims of broadcasting as a public service.
