He had already (Chapter 1) had notice of Peter Cadbury’s interest; news of other eager aspirants had also reached him. Technical surveys had confirmed that two transmitters would be needed and, given the nature of the region, the search for suitable sites would certainly have to take into account objections from local amenity preservation groups. Air date would therefore, he said, be probably late 1960 at the earliest.
