Summary
Pathe Intertitles - "Down in a secluded part of Surrey we found Miss Beatrice Harrison, who so happily suggested broadcasting the glorious notes that enthralled the poets of old."
"No more appropriate place could be desired than the beautiful grounds surrounding the home of the famous cellist."
"Not even a nightingale would wish for a charming spot,"
"Into this peaceful haunt of the songsters one day there stole the Broadcasting invaders, Mr. Rex Palmer and Captain West, with their wonderful microphone -"
"And everything tested and ready, only remained the wait until nightfall, when low-spoken words and the haunting melody of the calls announced the great experiment -"
