|After 75 years, BBC Monitoring is moving away
from Caversham. Over the years BBC Engineering has contributed to
the facilities at Caversham and
this news item gives an overview of the service's history.
In the past, when I added photographs to the
Training Course page I
did not list them on the New Items page. The reason is that
it just took too long to do at a time when I was adding quite a
lot of photographs. Unfortunately I forgot to change the
last-update date that was at the top of the Training Course page,
so it appeared that I had not added any photographs since 2014,
but in fact I had. So, if you are interested, you might like
to have a look around. In future I will list additions on
the New Items page.
One recently-added photograph shows a
budding Chief Engineer when he was a Probationary Technical
Assistant in 1959 and another shows him on a C course in 1960.
Many ex-staff from Transmission, Northern Ireland, World Service
and R&D will know who I mean! I am pleased to say that he is
now a valued supporter of this website.
