A (TXS) Broadcast Practice 94/1, March 1994 (Contributed by Ian Anderson)

Ian writes: "It was slightly unique in that the majority of the course did not actually work for the BBC. Myself and colleagues worked for BT Aeronautical and Maritime. In fact there were only two BBC employees, Nigel Mather and Richard Lecrivain. ....... I really enjoyed my time at Wood Norton. The standard of teaching was second to none. The place had a really nice atmosphere and our lecturer Richard Penman made the subject come alive and was one of natures gentleman. I look back fondly on my time with the BBC and its sad that the place is no more."
