Rediffusion was the trading name of Broadcast Relay Service Ltd. Rediffusion Limited was formed in the early 1930's. The name was based on re-diffusing or re-broadcasting audio signals through a wired network. Later developments included the relay of television programmes through their existing networks. From the early 1930’s to the 1980’s Rediffusion had their own wired networks in many UK and Overseas towns and cities which provided interference-free Radio and Television reception. Over the years the business expanded into a wide range of electronic and manufacturing companies including, Telecommunications, Broadcasting, Computer Systems, Flight Simulation, Music and Recording, Business Electronics and Television Manufacturing. By the mid 1980's Rediffusion’s owners decided divest its electronics interests and the Rediffusion Group was subsequently broken up and sold off.
