I am pleased to report that Nick Cutmore has been busy again!  See New Items (menu above) for some of the items that he has recently scanned for publication on bbceng.  I have now added all the items that Nick sent me in November and I think that will be enough to keep visitors amused for a while!  However, he has now scanned and sent me another 146 items and I will add them during 2018.  It takes me quite a long time to deal with each entry - working out where to put it, adding relevant text and links, then uploading and checking - so they will appear in small batches when I have the time and the inclination to do the work.    However, I am grateful to Nick for the considerable effort that he has made to scan these documents and I will ensure that they appear on bbceng in due course.  I am also grateful for the interest and support from visitors to bbceng. It makes the effort seem worthwhile, for both Nick and me. 

People involved with the development of NICAM, might be interested in this news.  (For some time bbceng has had this story of an even more nerve racking project!)
