No news

Fact or fiction? There was no news on 18th April 1930

It’s true – or at least it was for a 1930’s BBC broadcaster

Apparently, the story goes that the most boring news day was 18th April 1930. Imagine turning on your radio ready to hear the news bulletin only to hear a BBC radio presenter announce, ‘There is no news!’

Can’t ever imagine that happening now – 24 hour news nonsense fills up all the gaps!
