»It’s getting harder to remember what a slow news day looked like.

But 87 years ago, on 18 April 1930, the BBC’s news announcer had nothing to communicate. ›There is no news,‹ was the script of the 20:45 news bulletin, before piano music was played for the rest of the 15-minute segment.

The wireless service then returned to broadcasting from the Queen’s Hall in Langham Place, London, where the Wagner opera Parsifal was being performed.«
