This chapter discusses the expansion of the British Broadcasting Corporation's (BBC) European service into a world service in 1942. During this time the BBC had to deal with so many difficult wartime problems, both of intelligence and of propaganda, that its staff became too busy even to attend discussion on the international uses of radio. It explains that the British Home Office was also relying on BBC to coordinate monitoring of war-related developments around the world.
