2Lo Calling, Damian Albarn

On 14th November 1922 the BBC used the 2Lo transmitter to make its first ever broadcast. To celebrate the 90th anniversary the BBC commissioned Damian Albarn to create a piece to be broadcast on all 55 BBC radio stations at 17.33 GMT. The first scheduled simultaneous broadcast since 1922.

The "snapshot of the airwaves" features the chimes of Big Ben, bird song plus the talking clock pips and was broadcast live from the London Science Museum. What a great way to celebrate such a momentous event.
