This rare, pre-war film captures the grandeur and high spirits of Radiolympia. The brightly lit stands are graced by the biggest radio manufacturers of the day including Ediswan, EKCO and Siemens and there is an emphasis on entertainment. Early examples of promotional models and punters dancing in the aisles highlight the fun to be had at this cutting-edge event.
