Britain in Song
It's Benham Jones in for Corny O'Connell. On this date, 100 years ago, the British Broadcasting Corporation began broadcasting for the first time.
Marking the BBC's centennial with songs about Britain — here's what we played:
- The Kinks, "Victoria"
- The Clash, "London Calling"
- Pet Shop Boys, "West End Girls"
- Kirsty MacColl, "A New England"
