Comments:
   

Once part of the BBC's VHF (405-line) television network, Peterborough provides VHF network radio (FM and DAB) and BBC Radio Cambridgeshire to an area often described as the East Midlands.

The Peterborough station played a small part in broadcasting history when it carried Classic FM's 3-day pre-launch pilot transmissions. The station broadcast to the East Midlands as "Radio 101.9" without the presenters identifying themsleves.

On the evening of Saturday 30-Oct-2004 there was a fire at the Peterborough site. As a result the mast totally collapsed, falling onto the transmitter buildings and neighbouring fields.
