This photo dates from the 1970s, and shows Bob Hubbard (senior cameraman) and the vision crew, (Ian Dewar on the left) from the outside broadcast truck, CMCR9. The scanner was built in 1969, and was Pebble Mill’s first CM1, later becoming Manchester’s, North 3.

  1. Hi it’s Jon Hubbard here, Bob Hubbard’s son… Is there any way to get a high res image of this picture please?

    I’ve never seen it before!


  2. Hi Jon
    I’ll email over the copy I’ve got later on today, and I’ll see if I can find John Abbott’s contact details, as he may have more!

    Best wishes
