Notes: Charlotte Higgins traces the origins of the BBC, celebrating its early pioneering spirit and unearthing forgotten characters whose imprint can still be seen on the organisation today. Exploring how it forged ideas of Britishness both at home and abroad, she shows how controversy is in its DNA and, through interviews with grandees and loyalists, embattled press officers and high profile dissenters, sheds new light on recent feuds and scandals in this intriguing portrait of an institution at the heart of Britain.
