Jerry Clegg talking about the Scanner CMCR 9

Specially recorded video with Jerry Clegg, who used to be a sound assistant on North 3, the outside broadcast scanner, which was Pebble Mill’s original CM1. The scanner was built in 1969, and I think started life in London, before coming to Pebble Mill. Jerry describes how some of the equipment on the truck works.

The scanner was restored recently by its owner, Steve Harris, and a group of enthusiasts in Manchester, including Jerry. The truck was on display as part of a history of technology exhibition in October 2012, at Salford University.
