In 1922 the U.K. Government issued the first licence to a British broadcast station. The new station’s callsign was “2MT”, transmitting from a WW1 Army hut in Writtle. The first broadcast was made on 14th February 1922 by a team of Marconi engineers led by Captain Peter Eckersley. The broadcasts from Writtle were a great success and paved the way for the formation of the B.B.C later that same year.
