    The BBC has been at the centre of our national life for almost a century, and founder John Reith's mission to 'inform, educate and entertain' has shaped our public culture. This original history examines the way the corporation's early radio broadcasts championed monarchy and empire as causes around which the nation could unite, while fostering the distinctive national identities of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland within an overarching Britishness.
