If anyone remembers the 'Festival of Britain' they had a huge glass sphere just inside the entrance that glowed blue when you touched it.

Tours of the recently opened Pye Exhibition at Cambridge Museum of Technology at 2:00pm tomorrow (Sun 9th Feb), according to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

More details here:

Looks like this tour runs on the second Sunday of most months.

Note. I have obtained a number of Cecil's radios and am currently setting up a museum type display in the Inverness Emergency Bunker. This Bunker is a historic listed building and was used in WW2 as a filter room to process radar signals.

Radios did not play a large part in the filter room work - most communications were over land-lines (at least from radar masts to the filter room). None the less the units make a nice talking point during tours of the building.

There are some photos of the kit I have at Bunker Link.

That's certainly an extensive bunker with a very nice collection of exhibits. Thanks for posting.
