NTLPA has a collection of pictures, articles and other media that may be of interest to former employees of IBA and related companies. These are contained on a “cloud” drive which can be accessed via this link – NTLPA Gallery. (Additional items and videos can be accessed by members, with password, via the Members’ Gallery page.)
A folder entitled John_Brodsky_album containing photographs of John and other colleagues from the early days of ITA/IBA – thanks to Andy Archer for scanning and providing this. The file title of each photo generally contain the initials of those depicted and there is an index file giving the full names for those initialed.
A folder entitled “Mike Lambert” containing two presentations from him – a diagram showing the companies joining and leaving NTL, from ITV to Virgin Media, and also a fascinating presentation covering the history of the Crawley Court site from 1000 to 2000 AD!
A 20 minute video given in November 1969 by then Director of Engineering ITA, Howard Steele. This gives a fascinating insight to the work undertaken to introduce colour tv to ITV in the late ’60s. (This video is in the folder entitled “Howard Steele Nov 69” and it is best viewed in its original 4:3 format. You may need to select this in the player, eg VLC, you use.) Members can also access a video celebrating 50 years of colour ITV in the Members’ Gallery area.
