<shudder>

From the body language of that document, it feels like S4C still had and dug out an electronic copy of the original BoM from the SI who built the place, and kept it updated. All credit to them. Most auction lists for ex TV stations are not as well ordered as that

Anyone know what SI built the place, and when BTW ? Feels like mid to late 00s ish from the earlier components on the list ?

I'm having a couple of acronym guesses here. BoM is Bill of Materials (ie. list of equipment and associated bits), and SI is maybe System Integrator or something similar perhaps (ie. a company you pay to put all the stuff together and make it work to meet your needs). Is that right?
