30 years since the start of Operation Desert Storm

I remember the invasion of Kuwait better, coming during the hottest August spell the UK had had in 1990. The prospect of war was all the more likely as the months dragged on before like the report stated- patience just snapped with Iraq.

30 years ago...jese.

Speaking to my dad who was a Transmission controller for Westward/TSW working for GPO/BT, those sounds came from switch in the control room at Plymouth C telephone exchange.

Depending on the year some bits would have being coming down overnight from other ITV regions hence the white noise.

ATV used to send Crossroads down on a Sunday Morning weeks in advance for example.
