Tour of Vision Area on CMCR9

Specially shot video of Steve Harris, giving a tour of the restored 1969 outside broadcast scanner, CMCR9. The truck was BBC Pebble Mill’s original CM1, and became BBC Manchester’s North 3. Steve is the owner of the scanner and has restored it with fellow enthusiasts over the last few years. The video was filmed at a history of communication exhibition held at Salford University in October 2012.

The following comment was left on the Pebble Mill Facebook Group:

Keith Brook:’Good to put a face to Steve’s name. Although he’s right about the diminishing knowledge base, there are still loads of engineers about and I think this might be an opportunity to match-make. Jenny Brewer has the names of many who meet monthly at Selly Park.’
