Behind the Wireless tells the tale of ladies on the BBC within the Nineteen Twenties and 30s. Broadcasting was once fresh in Britain and the BBC constructed with out some of the overt discriminatory practices common on the time. ladies have been hired in any respect degrees, other than the very best, for example as secretaries, documentary makers, advertisements representatives, and librarians. 3 girls held Director point posts, Hilda Matheson (Director of Talks), Mary Somerville (Director of college Broadcasting), and Isa Benzie (Foreign Director). ladies additionally produced the programmes geared toward lady listeners and taken girls broadcasters to the microphone. there has been an ethos of equality and the opportunity to upward push during the ranks from bills clerk to accompanist. yet lurking at the back of the façade of modernity have been hidden inequalities in recruitment, pay, and merchandising and in 1932 a wedding bar was once brought. Kate Murphy examines how and why the interwar BBC created new possibilities for women.
