This chapter examines the events in the Battle of Britain to provide a better understanding of the domestic and international role of British broadcasting in 1940. It argues that the propaganda tactics of German broadcasters during this battle were far less effective that they had been during the blitzkrieg in Holland, Belgium, and France. It describes the programmes and broadcasting of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) during this time.
