Alan Rogers, Britain, London, five-week

Image ID:

Here is the news about power cuts. Radio newsreader Alan Rogers tells listeners about the power crisis - with candles lighting his studio. An electricity cut blacked out Radio London's headquarters as Alan was about to go on the air on Thursday night (10-2-72). But programmes continued, with candles and car batteries providing emergency lighting. The radio station was one of thousands of buildings hit by surprise power cuts - the first since the start of the five-week-old miners' strike. The cold snap forced electricity chiefs to make cuts throughout Britain a day earlier than expected. February 1972 P018764
