BBC Roll of Honour

Contributed by BBCNI Community Archive

This Roll of Honour lists BBC members of staff who died in World War Two. It was displayed at the BBC's Lisnagarvey Transmitting Station in Northern Ireland.

Lisnagarvey began operations in 1936 and brought BBC radio services to the whole region. Its opening was accompanied by much fanfare and a specially commissioned sequence of programmes. The transmitter's size and design made it a distinctive feature of the local countryside. The building at Lisnagarvey included a large transmitter hall and was finished to a similar specification as other BBC facilities that were commissioned at around the same time. It reflected modernist influences and featured carved reliefs depicting the importance of industry and agriculture to the local economy. Lisnagarvey was immortalised in the title sequences of the BBC Northern Ireland television series, Ulster Mirror.
