1975 Was the first live broadcast in the The House of Commons Parliament Westminster. This was aired by BBC Radio and other commerical stations. BBC had David Holmes and Edmund Boyle. Tony Benn was one of the first speakers to be aired. It was a trial as challenges occured for people being able to follow on radio because of the fact MPs were reffered to as “honourable gentleman” not their names. The Commentators had to be fast to give directions because of the speed of debates.
