On 10 July 1969 the BBC published its plans for radio and television in a policy document entitled Broadcasting in the Seventies. Later described in 2002 by Jenny Abramsky, Head of Radio and Music, as “the most controversial document ever produced by radio”, the document outlined each station’s target audience and what content should be broadcast on each channel. This concept went against the earlier methods laid out by the BBC’s first Director General John Reith and caused controversy at the time, despite laying out the radio structure that is recognisable today
