The Post Office disliked them because although their subscribers each paid a licence fee in the normal way, it was obliged to give the relay operators another licence to pass messages over wires – something on which it otherwise enjoyed a statutory monopoly. The manufacturers disliked them because they enabled people to hire a mere loudspeaker instead of buying a full wireless set; and the BBC disliked them because they threatened its monopoly by carrying foreign stations as well as its own programmes.

The question of elitism arose because as we have seen, the BBC’s public service policy was to try to provide not just something for everyone, but the best of everything – and ‘the best’ is a notoriously difficult concept which is likely to cause controversy not simply about the merits of programmes within certain categories, but about where those categories should be drawn. For instance, for all those listeners who liked music, what constituted ‘the best’? Classical, as distinct from popular music?

In 1948, these services were renamed the BBC External Services and thence-forward reflected the vagaries of government policy and the national economy. In the 1950s they contracted, in the 1960s they expanded, and after the 1973 oil crisis they suffered cuts. By 1995 the BBC World Service, as they have been collectively known since 1965, was broadcasting in English and forty other languages to a confirmed weekly audience of 130 million, plus uncounted millions in places such as China, Burma and Iran.
