    Default BBC Type A and B .... an explanation.

    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. 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.

    Did you notice the mention of Capt. Eckersley (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.
