Harold Robin
Propaganda radio broadcasts were sent to other countries as well as Germany, such as France, Italy, Yugoslavia and the Netherlands.

One of the problems the initial radio shows had, was that they did not have powerful enough transmitters to reach the heart of Europe

In 1941 a very clever technician called Harold Robin (pictured left) was sent to America with a lot of money to buy a 600 kilowatt transmitter. This was a very powerful transmitter and meant that British propaganda shows could be sent on medium wave frequencies directly to Germany.
