I posted a message yesterday but I received an ‘awaiting moderation’ message and the post still has not appeared!!
Anyway, I was trying to alert historians and archivists to the new BBCrewind website.
This contains thousands of videos from old BBCTV footage. By typing ‘telescope’ into the search window I found
some fascinating clips, especially H.P. Wilkins and John Wall at Crayford in 1959, plus Wilkins in his garden in
1953, talking about the controversial O’Neill’s bridge on the Moon. There are some other fascinating clips too,
such as the 16″ AE Cross-Axis Cassegrain at Armagh, described by Terence Murtagh, and a big 18-inch telescope,
also at Crayford.
I’m avoiding posting web links as maybe that was why my last post was censored?!
Just Google BBCrewind and then type telescope into the search field.
