1920s Broadcasting for Reel

Have you ever wondered what early film and broadcast productions were like?

The Gaumont Graphic newsreel story BROADCASTING VISUALISED (5/3/1926), will give you wonderful insights into both: as part of the News on Screen /NewsFilm Online Linking Project work, we have come across rare footage of a BBC radio transmission being conducted on the set of Gaumont’s Studios during the production of the film LONDON LOVE (1926, dir. Manning Haynes).

The footage can be viewed on the ITN Source website which manages the Reuters collection.
