Foreword

Q1TATISTICS are the accepted footprints of an indus- try's progress and growth. Nineteen fifty-eight in the broadcasting industry, both American and world-wide, was essentially a year of change. The record of those changes, major as well as minor, and their effect upon the industry, will be found chronicled on the pages of this, the 22nd Edition of the Radio Annual Television Year Book.

T ONG acknowledged the Recognized Standard Ref- ■^ erence Book for the industry, its pages further re- flect evidence of continued advancements and contribu- tions in the great medium of broadcasting for the spreading of vital information and entertainment.

TT hardly need be added that the 22nd edition again represents the efforts of countless collaborators, of- ficial and unofficial. To these loyal friends of the Radio Television Daily and the industry, once again, our deep and grateful appreciation.

A new series, a new look at Britain and the British today . . . through the eyes of Joan and Julius Evans, an American couple abroad.

You will meet an attractive lady chemist with definite views on marriage and careers ... a 20th Century "Mr. Chips" . . . an out-of-fiction London cabbie . . a dedicated atomic physicist ... a pretty young theater hopeful ... a Rhodes Scholar from North Carolina . . . and many others. Among the places you will visit are Bohemian Soho, busy London Airport (where jets came of age) , Ulster (which sent America 14 Presidents), Harwell (crucible of nuclear research) and rebuilt Coventry, Britain's Detroit.

"TOPIC" is no quaint tourist trip . . . but rather, a frank and friendly visit with an energetic and dynamic people, and their country . . . it's exciting, stimulating TV, a must for your best public service time!
