In the spring of 1924, the first ever live-to-radio broadcast from an outdoor location was a duet between cellist Beatrice Harrison and a singing nightingale in her garden in Surrey. A million people listened in and the programme was picked up as far afield as Italy, France, Spain and Hungary. On May 19th, 1942, the transmission was cut short.
