This chapter examines the changes in the patterns of radio programming of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). It explains that during the war, familiar old issues continued to be raised such as whether Happidrome should be broadcast in the Forces programme opposite the religious service. BBC continued to be judged by most of its listeners in terms of the home programmes it provided. This provides a detailed description of the reorganization of BBC's programming.
