In a unique experiment, Dallas Campbell, Professor Danielle George and Dr Hugh Hunt join forces in an attempt to restage the very first official broadcast on British Television, exactly 80 years after it made history. It's not going to be easy. The team will uncover the mixed influences of high-minded radio and bawdy variety shows on early TV, seek advice from pre-war television pioneers, and presenter Dallas Campbell will learn just how much harder his job would have been 80 years ago.
