The Marconi New Street works in Chelmsford, Essex was the world's first purpose built wireless factory and became the world's first electronics factory using mass production techniques. For well over ninety years the huge factory was the centre of the massive Marconi Company Empire that stretched across the world. However, the disastrous collapse of the Marconi Company prompted the abandonment of the huge complex of offices, workshops, laboratories, test areas and manufacturing plant that alone once employed over 10,000 people. When the factory was opened in 1912, the SS Titanic had just sunk in the middle of the Atlantic and 711 lives were saved solely due to the use of Guglielmo Marconi's invention and the brave Marconi wireless operators aboard. It was the tragedy of the Titanic that gave birth to the modern wireless age and spurred a growth in manufacture and development that probably could not have occurred otherwise. One hundred years later in 2012 the site stands empty and vandalised. This is the story of the world's first wireless factory, partly told in the words of the people who worked there. Within its walls the science and art of wireless communication was born. I also firmly believe that this is where the modern electronics age, be it radio, television, radar, satellite or even mobile telephones was born. The Marconi New Street Works, 1912 - 2012, was the birthplace of Britain's last industrial revolution.

When in 1895 twenty-one-year old Guglielmo Marconi made his first wireless transmission over land, he became the boy wonder of the world. When subsequently, he made similar transmissions across the Atlantic Ocean, thus proving to the world that his radio-related inventions had immediate and wide-ranging applications for all of humanity, young Marconi ushered in the Age of Communication. Today, while Marconi's inventions have become all too common in everyday use on earth, his two-way communications systems are bringing outer space into the reach of every earthly human being. Can one deny the network of cell phones that keep billions of people in touch with one another no matter where they are located? This book, Guglielmo My Beloved, by his devoted wife, Maria, his adoring daughter, Elettra, and his respectful grandson, Guglielmo, is a sure tribute to a deserving scientist who brought good and great things to his fellow human beings.

Praise for the first edition: "It is a wonderful source of information and has the merit of going straight to the subject, being technically precise although very easy to understand. There are numerous pictures, photographs, diagrams, which make the reading a real pleasure." --European Broadcasting Union Technical Review "The complexity of a satellite newsgathering system could be a four-month long college course with a high tuition rate and an enrolment number so large you have to watch your professor on a TV screen. Jonathan Higgins might have saved the independent learner a few attendance point deductions by fitting it into one book." --Satellite Broadband magazine An ideal introduction for anyone working, or interested, in satellite newsgathering (SNG). The new edition of this popular book builds upon the success of the first--an important and valuable work that is extermely easy to read, comprehensive in its treatment, and detailed where necessary. SNG used to be an immensely complex and expensive affair where broadcasting organizations were at the mercy of an expert who sat in a lonely corner, until needed. Things have changed--everyone in a global news organization needs to know about it now. This is not only because of the high costs of mistakes, but because now even non-technical journalists on the ground have to operate their own equipment. Learn the skills, basics of equipment, cutting edge technology and critical safety issues of satellite newsgathering.
