But did you know that our organisation, and our predecessor government organisations, have a rich history of innovation in radio technology?
One brilliant example of that is the Aspidistra: a unique radio transmitter developed in 1941 to aid Britain in the war effort. How? Well, one of its main uses was for Soldatensender Calais: a fake radio station directed at German soldiers. Broadcasting in German, this convincing channel interspersed jazz music programmes with seemingly accurate news bulletins that were designed to lower morale among the German troops.
