Well, you learn something new every day. Who would believe that Pro. Unwin actually worked as an engineer at the BBC. Astonishing.

Talking about BBC mixing desks here (http://soundcloud.com/blogmywiki/prof-unwin-on-the-b-type-desk#play). It's all very clear to me now.

What is really astonishing is the quality of the recording, the beautiful annunciation (of one party at least). A lost art.

Amazing - and it all made sense too!

Did you notice the mention of Capt. Eckersley (http://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/about/history/history.shtml) (and his patent) at about 2 mins in?

As I recall, the poor captain was dismissed in disgrace around 1930, having fallen for a married woman, which Director General John Reith simply couldn't tolerate.
