About this web site
This is a private web site run by Martin Ellen and it is independent from any organisation. Details of present status are on the Web Site Guide page.
The aim is to record the working atmosphere and the many achievements of BBC engineering between 1922 and 1997. The web site focuses on BBC Engineering Division, but it includes references to engineering activities throughout the BBC as well as relevant external organisations. Other material is also included if it is likely to appeal to people who have an interest in the core subject.
The web site will remain in operation for the foreseeable future and when it reaches a suitable stage it will be sent to BBC Written Archives in order to ensure that the work of all contributors is kept safely in the long term. In the meantime an arrangement is in place to ensure that the web site can remain in operation if the present webmaster ceases to be able to continue (John Robinson is the relevant contact in such circumstances).
Contributions are welcome from anyone with a knowledge of BBC engineering or related activities.
Informative, interesting or amusing articles related to BBC engineering, preferably including some "human interest".
Anything from typed sheets and printed pictures to web files, but please make contact to discuss the options.
The web site was started in January 2006 and incorporates two previous web sites which closed in 2006:
