Past events at Devon Heritage Centre

  • Radio Devon broadcast, January 2014
    The ‘Good Morning Devon’ programme, broadcast live from the Devon Heritage Centre on 17 January 2014, was a great success and made for a really interesting listen. Several staff got up especially early to contribute to the show’s success. The presenter, Matt Woodley, sent us a nice thank you afterwards and said that he had received universally positive feedback about the programme. Matt has given us an audio recording of the show to go with the archive copy of the Radio Devon audio time capsule which he presented to Devon Heritage Centre on the day.  It  must be physically the smallest deposit in the history of the record office – a mini-USB memory stick with the BBC Radio Devon ‘audio time capsule’ on it.   Ian Ponsford of Conservation has made it a bespoke box and it’s now stored in the fridge in the photographic strongroom.   Irene Andrews has made a copy of both audio recordings on CD for use in the searchroom, should anyone ask to listen to them.
