Whispers
Produced by: Chris Brookes
Today the airwaves buzz with voices from cell phones, radio, television, and more. Yet, over one hundred years ago the air was strangely empty. Then on Signal Hill in Newfoundland, a young Italian inventor threw a kite antenna into the air and changed the world forever. The man was Guglielmo Marconi and his reception of the first trans-Atlantic wireless signal on December 12, 1901 has made possible almost every communication device we use today. How did it all happen, find out from producer Chris Brookes.

Program Credits

Whispers was produced by Chris Brookes of Battery Radio. The actors were Bernie Stapleton, Trevor Davies, Brian Hennessey, and John Holmes.
