If you have not done so already would you please sign the petition to

Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU

if you are eligible to so.

On 24th March at 18:40 it stood at 5,162,436 and was increasing at over 400 per minute, but this powerful message needs to be hammered home so that a People's Vote takes place.


The bbceng.info domain and webspace is paid for and run by me: Martin Ellen.

Its normal purpose is to provide "Recollections of BBC engineering from 1922 to 1997".

However as the United Kingdom is in crisis I am suspending the normal content of the site in order to make the above appeal.

This is a personal request and it does not necessarily represent the wishes or views of contributors to the normal content of bbceng.info.

I appreciate that this use of the domain will not be approved of by a number of visitors, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible - to quote a well known phrase from the early days of broadcasting! 

i.e. possibly near the end of March 2019

Some significant additions to the normal content will be on the website soon.

For the avoidance of doubt: This is NOT a message from the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Thank you
