After the short lived experimental Matrix H & HJ broadcasts in the late 1970’s, the BBC worked with Denon and the N.R.D.C. developing UHJ. But it wasn’t until the late 80’s and early 90’s they finally broadcast a number of experimental radio programs in UHJ, which mainly consisted of classical broadcasts on Radio 3 and plays on Radio 4, of which this was one.
