About This Company

In March 1928 Broadcast Relay Services Limited was established to provide a new service relaying radio programmes by wire to loudspeakers in subscribers' homes.

Broadcast Relay Services  – a division of British Electric Traction and the supplier of ‘piped radio’ services in areas without a good signal – originally sought the London weekend ITV contract in 1955. To back their considerable experience in colonial television and domestic relay services, they brought the newspaper group Associated, publishers of the Daily Mail, who had the financial and political muscle that a new television company would need.

The consortium was named ‘Associated-Rediffusion Television Limited’, combining the name of the newspaper group with that of BRS subsidiary ‘Rediffusion’, and the ITA offered them the 5-day weekday contact in London. They accepted without hesitation, and thus took on the bulk of the responsibility for the look and feel of the new independent television service.
