Dr. John Causebrook; and I worked together at the Independent Broadcasting Authority, Crawly Court, Winchester, Hampshire. He was my reporting Manager for over 5 Years, in the Service Area Planning Department, a very charismatic person, very bright with a sense of humor which was quite acutely dry at times. I remember as a new Engineer he tasked me with equations; and draw out a Smith's Polar Chart to prove a point, 28 Years on, I still remember his mentor-ship and analytical experiences I gained Great Chap!, sadly I left the IBA in 1987 and settled in Canada. Tried contacting John, with no luck for nostalgic technical breakthrough's.
