E16 - Frogs over the Air

Nov 10, 2013, 03:24 AM, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, England

November 2013

This month, with so much happening at Bletchley Park recently, we have to bring you an extended episode.

First we grab Hard-Hats & Hi Viz Jackets to join Conservation

Architect Janie Price & Site Manager Rob Davies to get an in-depth update on the HLF Restoration of Bletchley Park, from

floorboards to granite floors, via the roof.

In October Bletchley Park hosted Are You Listening? The event

looked at the history of communications. We spoke to members

of Milton Keynes Amateur Radio Society, the British Vintage

Wireless Society & the Vintage & Military Amateur Radio Society.

Also in October Cyber Security Challenge UK & Raytheon held an

event called Today, Then and Tomorrow. It looked at the role of

women in cyber security, celebrating the Bletchley Park Veterans, leading figures of today & a look into the future. Katherine spoke

to Natalie Black of the Cabinet Office, after we found out just

what her job title was. We will bring you the rest of this

fascinating day in Podcast EXTRA’s – E29 (out on 24/11/13).

Final join us as we walk around with two amazing Veterans,

Norah Boswell, a Wren Bombe Operator who was stationed at

Stanmore & Joyce Roberts, a WAAF Teleprinter Operator at

Bletchley Park. Look out for Podcast EXTRA’s – E30 (out on

31/11/13) for even more from what was a great day for us all.
