Transmission Newsletters

Home Up

Various type of newsletter were produced over the years, for distribution to staff.  The contents ranged from factual information through to articles and snippets that were intended to be entertaining or amusing (I'll leave you to be the judge!).

Craig Brownlie has very kindly scanned the first three titles for bbceng.info and they can be seen by clicking on the links below.

Pay Day Gazette

Contributed by Keith Hayler.

This series of club newsletters were published following the privatisation of BBC Transmission and so they don't really belong on BBCeng.  However they do convey a little of the atmosphere amongst the staff in the Headquarters building at Warwick immediately after leaving the BBC.  In due course BBCeng might include a more serious section on the privatisation of BBC Transmission.
