BBC’s ‘Antiques Road Trip’ visited Bawdsey Radar.
Antiques Road Trip BBC1 4.30pm on Monday 24 January
In September last year Philip Serrell and a camera crew from the BBC’s ‘Antiques Road Trip’ visited Bawdsey Radar. The programme features two antiques’ experts who tour an area buying antiques which are sold at auction at the end of each programme. One of the experts also visits a local place of interest.
The team filmed at Bawdsey for a little over three hours both outside and inside the block. Graham Murchie, one of our Trustees, took part and was questioned about the history of radar by Philip. In particular, he was asked about some of the people involved in the early operational activities. Philip has an interest in WWII and was intrigued to learn more about the contribution made by radar.
The programme will be shown on BBC1 at 4.30pm on Monday 24 January and available on iPlayer afterwards. We were so pleased to welcome the team and their coverage helps to share the story of Bawdsey Radar.
We hope that it will encourage you to visit once the museum re-opens later in the spring!Back To News
