We have have had an inquiry (from Brian Magee through Richard Schurmann) regarding an optical audio-only recording technology used before WW2 (Phillips -Miller), asking whether any members of AES Melbourne remember the technology or know of a recorder that was possibly purchased/used by ABC Melbourne. 
He has heard whispers that ABC Melbourne may still have these, perhaps even in working condition.
Does anyone have any details or ideas?  
If so please reply to this message.

A web search turns up lots of information on this early recording system, including this infomative article on its use at the BBC -  http://www.orbem.co.uk/tapes/pm.htm  

I will pass any insight on to Brian.
