This event has already taken place!
We’re delighted to announce that the MCR21 BBC Broadcasting Truck and its associated display will be arriving for an exhibition from 6th to 17th July.
MCR21 is the oldest and most complete outside broadcast van and has been chosen by the BBC in its centenary year as one of the ‘100 objects that made the BBC.’
BBC’s design of the mobile control room was an important advance, taking programming out of the studio and enabling the broadcast of events such as the state funeral of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965 and England’s football World Cup victory at Wembley in 1966.
