Remember that this is YOUR GROUP. Do please consider joining our little management team for the interest group. You can contact either Ray or John.
We welcome anyone who is prepared to help put together the group's future programme of talks, discussions, visits and demonstrations.
Check out the link opposite to see a purely brainstormed list of ideas for topics. If any of the ideas excites you, and especially if it is something you can either talk about or want to know more about - do give us a call!
Next meeting. Friday 17th May. We are back at the Glebe Centre. We will be preparing from 13:30 for a 14:00 start.
John Wells will be presenting a second follow-up talk to his MEMS talk on the history and development of TV in the UK, together with a few choice anecdotes.
Last time we got about as far as 1975. This time he will be talking first about the introduction of Colour TV - including an enormous mistake made by Combined Electronic Services. Then we progress to the disappearance of the enormous bulbous CRT and the genesis of the flat screen. Then if time permits we will look at Digital TV and MIGHT even end up with MOEMS as promised earlier!
