The photo shows Radio WM Engineer, Rod Fawcett, with Chris Nelson and Tom Horsfield, adjusting the mast, on an outside broadcast in Birmingham’s Victoria Square. The radio car is a Montego. There was obviously some Victorian theme, hence the costumes.
The following comment was left on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:
Andy Walters: ‘Those masts were awful. Looks like Tom is having a little difficulty there. Every so often a Journalist would drive under a low bridge and whack the antenna off the top of the stowed mast. The car that succeeded the one in the picture, a Peugeot 405 now resides in Coventry Motor Museum.’
