The Aims and Objectives of the Museum of the Broadcast television Camera. Terms and Conditions of use of this site.

Aims and Objectives
This web site and the Museum of the Broadcast television Camera have been created to provide an authoritative source of information about the technical and other details of Broadcast Television Cameras and their associated equipment. Information is given to assist in the preservation, restoration, care and operation of Broadcast Camera equipment. A reference library of technical documentation and literature is kept.

Museum Supporters

Physical Museum
The physical museum is not available for visits as almost all of it is carefully packed away in safe storage awaiting a suitable premises to display it. This seems unlikely in Surrey, England as even a small building commands a Kings ransom in operating costs. From time to time the Museum will put on "camera displays" at suitable events. Bona fide researchers may visit by appointment and I will bring out of store the camera to be researched.
