This probably true. What excited me as a kid was seeing ancient works. It is the lack of that that annoys me about my local museum.

I think that it needs to be said that the Broadcast Engineering Museum is not 'mine' in any form, it's the collaborative and dedicated work of all the trustees of our charity, our supporters and our volunteers. It's been a long haul to where we are now and, as they say, it's all to play for! It's the museum of the BECG - the Broadcast Engineering Conservation Group.

As an aside - if you have an hour or two to spare - the ethos of the 'new' Bradford Museum is laid out here:

If you read all the sections in all the parts, it will take quite a while, but you can clearly see the thinking behind it. What it shows is that the technology, the hardware and its history are no longer key drivers to what they are doing there.

Best regards,

Paul M

A brief wade through its various wordy sections gives me the impression that the emphasis is now to be focussed on Bradford and politically-correct anticolonialism rather than the development of technology per se. A consequence of the cut in government funding. I am just glad I visited it when I did.
