You're on a hiding to nothing with this one.It is fully documented by BBC and others and his been stated in broadcasts by the BBC and others that it's origins date back to 18 October 1922, when the British Broadcasting Company Limited was formed. Any simple research will openly tell you that. Where are the 'lies and obfuscation'? There are none.
I don't except this to pass your censorship, by the way, because it's not what you want to hear, but, if I may say so, that is also a fact.
