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.
