THE Report of the Broadcasting Committee (H.M.S.O., Cmd. 2599, 6d. net), to which a brief reference was made in our issue of March 13, is commendably concise and at the same time practical; the recommendations made therein are likely to meet with general approval. The problem which the Committee had to consider, that of advising the Postmaster-General as to the scope of the broadcasting service in Great Britain and as to the management, control, and finance thereof after the expiry of the licence of the British Broadcasting Co. on December 31 next, is one which possesses several features containing special difficulties, not merely in relation to the scientific and technical aspects of the service, but yet more so in relation to various influences, still latent, which it may be capable of exerting on practically the whole range of human activities, political, commercial, educational, recreative, and social.
