Radio's Childhood

Statsradiofoniens barndom

The film shows the beginning of Danish radio. We watch radio pioneers working under primitive conditions, witness the emotional reactions of the first radio listeners receiving broadcasts on headphones, and sample the various programme forms – radio plays, morning callisthenics, news and concerts.
