In early February 1922, from a small ex-army hut in a field just outside the Essex village of Writtle near Chelmsford. A small team or pioneering wireless engineers working for the Marconi company established Britain's first regular radio broadcasting station. In it's short year long history, the station using the call sign of 2MT, or as it soon became known to its many fans - Two Emma Toch, became a broadcasting legend. For led by Captain P.P.Eckersley, its engineers became it's on-air staff who in that short year on air, developed and establsihed most of the ground rules for broadcasting as we know it today. It's small wonder that apart from one engineer who stayed with Marconi, The others all went on to join and help establish the early BBC, which came on the air, almost a year later.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
