About this Item

side 1 bears a printed 'Part I', the rest of the title with the date is in neat manuscript, apparently contemporary, the label on the other playing side is blank, 2 sides 10 inches, [Windsor Castle], December in a fine presentation box An early exemplar of one of the most famous broadcasts of the 20th century. It was recorded by BBC engineers in defiance of official orders. An exceptionally rare piece. I have a playable recording of the record. There is a sound dropout on the second side but you can still hear what he says. This is more complete version than is generally known. You can hear him rustling of paper and he is introduced by John Reith who you can hear leaving the room with the door closing behind him - it was recorded at Windsor. Bookseller Inventory # 55052
