Previously BBCeng only included one Designs Department Annual Report, but nearly all of them have now been added (see New Items, above).  They provide an excellent overview of the work done by DD during 34 years. Reports for 6 of the years are missing, so please contribute if you have any of them.
Many thanks are due to Bill Murray for his foresight in collecting the reports and Nick Cutmore for his dedication in spending about 100 hours scanning them.

This IET lecture is likely to be of interest to BBCeng visitors: Aspidistra and the Broadcast Group of the Diplomatic Wireless Service including the WW2 transmission of black propaganda.
