Damon Albarn's Radio Reunited broadcast

On Wednesday it is 90 years since the first ever BBC broadcast and to mark the anniversary, every BBC radio station across the UK and the globe will be coming together for the first time in the BBC's history.

At 17:33 on Wednesday they will simultaneously broadcast a three minute composition by Blur front man Damon Albarn for the Radio Reunited project.

The BBC's John Wilson went to meet Mr Albarn, who explained the audio collage that he had created: "There's Bertrand Russell in Morse code, there's a skylark and there's a scary Cold War spy station."
