April News


In April 2016 I added the first part of a document describing the Marconi-EMI TV System. At the time I was only aware of one surviving copy, but I have now been made aware of five which are presently being looked after by:-

1) Me (rescued from BBC Transmission Headquarters in Warwick, when it closed down).

2) Nick Cutmore (rescued from Wrotham transmitting station by Peter Sparks and sent to Nick via me).

3) Richard Prytaherch (rescued from Alexandra Palace by his father).

4) Phil Marrison (rescued from Sutton Coldfield).

5) John Sykes (rescued from Kingswood Warren)

The Science Museum in London probably also has a copy.

When the entire document has been scanned, I will make it available on this web site. Hopefully this will be done by the end of 2016. Discussions will then take place to ensure that the physical copies continue to be cared for. Any advice on this matter would be welcome.
