Collectively Camberley Car Show – BBC Outside Broadcast production vehicle

Are you a fan of TV Broadcasting? then you’re going to love the BBC Outside Broadcast production vehicle.

Its history is the history of how TV developed in the 1960s, as television in Britain became more expansive in that era, more outside broadcast capacity was needed.

An outside broadcast vehicle, the 3rd of 10 commissioned from the Pye electronics firm by the BBC, was ordered.

It was built on top of a Commer chassis by coachbuilders Marshall’s of Cambridge, equipped with 4 black and white cameras, and using Pye technology. Delivered in 1963, it was given the serial number “MCR21”, standing for Mobile Control Room then the number of the vehicle in the BBC OB fleet.
