Fancy some really old BBC equipment ?

BBC's birthday present to Bradford
Rich stash of props, mikes, cameras and slices of the action from 90 years of broadcasting are given to the National Media Museum

http://p5x.co/13660
The collection is still being sorted and transferred to the museum's safe-keeping, but the first selection of interesting highlights goes on display in Bradford this Wednesday 14 November – 90 years today after the BBC's first broadcast.
There will also be an online gallery on the museum's website but you can't beat going to see the place for real, and the wider city is well worth a day's exploration at the minimum.

I was thinking more like "what the butler saw".
I always liked the look of those ginormous cameras at the start of Grandstand (I think), many years ago.

Take off the BBC logo and it looks more like something out of a 50's Sci-Fi B movie  Cool
