The Story of Forces Broadcasting in Germany. In December 1944, with the war still raging in NW Europe and the Germans about to launch their ill-fated counteroffensive in the Ardennes, four Mobile Broadcasting Units left Tilbury docks for Ostend. Their role was to relay the Allied Expeditionary Forces Programme to the advancing British and Canadian armies. But with the end of the war in Europe five months later came the need to find a permanent home for these roving broadcasting units. This book traces the story of the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS), as these units became, from a harem in Algiers in 1944 to the Musikhalle in Hamburg, and on to the new headquarters of forces radio and television in Herford for Service Sound and Vision Corporation (SSVC) in the 1990s.
