A Star in our Midst

14th December 2009

Our Technical Director David Trevor Jones has been spotted on several TV programmes in recent months. The One Show on BBC1 was the first to recognise his talent when he was interviewed in June at the Duke of Yorks Cinema, Brighton, by Giles Brandreth on the centenary of the Cinematograph Act.

His acoustic expertise was used in a recent series, Richard Hammond’s Engineering Connections about Wembley Stadium for National Geographic. David worked with Richard Hammond to demonstrate the acoustic effect of the angling surfaces within the stadium. This program will be re-broadcast on BBC2 in the near future. You can watch this now: Engineering Connections Part 4. - This is an external site.

In October he appeared on Timeshift: The Last Days of the Liners on BBC4. David was talking about the last great ocean liners of the 1950s and '60s and the transition from line voyaging to cruising.
