An enjoyable satire that pokes fun at corporations such as th BBC, Radio Parade Of 1935 features Will Hay in uncharacteristically suave mode as William Garland, the Director-General of the National Broadcasting Group, a remote figure who has never seen his own studios.

Contending with an ambitious young manager with plans to popularise the medium and designs on Garland's daughter, the film also features a villainous theatrical agent who bans his stars from appearing on a prestigious NBG show. However, the staff save the day, turning out to be natural talents as they mount their own successful production.

Featuring a number of lavish song and dance routines and memorable turns, the film also foretells the increasing dominance of television.
