In 1963, Broadcasting House opened. It was the nerve centre of the country's radio networks and home to the Capital's stations. Its Japanese-made technical equipment was state-of-the-art and its studios world-standard. It was demolished in 1997 to make way for an extension of parliament that never happened. In 1972, Spectrum's Jack Perkins recorded a day's activities in Broadcasting House. This rebroadcast of 'Sound Around the Clock' marks 50 years since the opening of Broadcasting House.
