Marvels Mysteries of Engineering

This Post reminds me of the opening of the (new) BBC2 television service which never happened.

TVC has a ring main that encloses the entire premises On that ring there are (were) three substations which terminated 2 x 5MW
cables (not for simultaneous use) and a 2MW as a standby. Oddly all three cables originated in the same substation and were routed to TVC via the same tunnel. An invitation that the Devil could not ignore. There was a fire in that tunnel.

With matters once more under control the Director of TV appeared in font of News cameras to assure his viewers it would not happen again and he moved aside to disclose a massive Outside Broadcast deisel generator waiting to shoulder the load. Seemed that he wasn't told that with belt, braces and a bit of string permanently in place in place it had not occurred to anyone to fit a 3-pin socket outside the front door.
