Con A announcers' desk

These photos show the changes made to the Type B continuities for Radio 1 use.

Radio 1 cons

Radio 2 sign
Chris Davies supplied this picture of one of the signs which indicated the network occupying each con. They were discarded for Type D. The holes were made large for easy removal from the screw heads (or hooks - Chris can't remember) so that if cons were changed the signs went with the network.
