On Air: Chelmsford’s Global Experiment’ at Chelmsford Museum Parts 1 - 3
One hundred years ago, Chelmsford was the location of a ground-breaking radio test. Dame Nellie Melba, one of the most famous singers in the world, came to the New Street Works to perform the first live entertainment broadcast o 15th June 1920.
The centenary of this remarkable event is the focus of ‘On Air: Chelmsford’s Global Experiment’ at Chelmsford Museum.
The exhibition opened just before the lockdown started, so we haven’t been able to share this story with as many of you as we’d like. We hope you’ll get to see it when we can open our doors once again, but in the meantime, we are remembering this centenary with a virtual exhibition in the form of three films.
Our story begins many years before.....
