BBC Career

On graduation day, Margaret and Ed Lyons got married, and together, they departed to London, England. In 1951, Lyons began her career at the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) as a dictation typist. Over the course of the next two years, she worked her way up in the company and eventually landed a position in BBC's in-house training program. Lyons worked as the producer for BBC's Asian current affairs service for the following six years.

Although rather brief, Lyons' eight-year-old career at BBC uncovered her love for radio, something that she would hold on to for the rest of her life. Displayed below are various B&W photographs of Lyons during her time with BBC.
