80 years ago, 'Music While You Work' began on the BBC.

​Announced in the Radio Times as a “half hour’s music meant specially for factory workers to listen to as they work”, it soon proved a favourite with all listeners, as its familiar signature tune by Eric Coates rang out.

​Hear its story presented by Brian Savin with Brian Reynolds on August Bank Holiday Monday at 12 noon on Serenade Radio.
