Thanks to M0SLX I carried on looking about the archives after his post.

Love the video = especially how it encourages the firms to sell the Pye AM system, and to downplay the others promoting FM - funny how these things always come around.

Great now I know I'm getting old - remember using both the Pye Cambridge and Westminster sets in our vans at work back in the 70's.

The story as I understand it, is that dick had a fall last year that resulted in a head injury & that he died a few weeks ago. But I am not sure if there was a link between the fall & his dying.
I really only know what I read else where.
