E16 - Frogs over the Air
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.
