Bryan Donkin on the BBC

You may remember (how could you forget?) our blogpost about Bryan Donkin back in June:

It was just a link to a BBC web article about Bryan Donkin’s invention of the tin can, but I did also point out that Donkin’s experimental work on this is recorded in his series of diaries (D5029/1), held here.  Well, here’s another link in the same vein:

It takes you to the section of last night’s Inside Out programme which dealt with Donkin and the tin can.  You won’t have seen it unless you live in the Cumbria/North East region, but recent technological advances mean you can see it without so much as fiddling with an aerial.
