Testing transmission tower section. This is a model of the Band I Section, a region of the BBC television transmission tower at Crystal Palace, London, UK. The model is inside a wind tunnel at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK, as it is being tested for wind stability. Strong winds on the tower would cause interference and interrupt the signals being received by television sets. Photographed in 1955.
