The radio telescope at Jodrell Bank has been monitoring deep space for nearly 50 years. It is Britain's eyes and ears on the universe. Hundreds of people keep it listening and watching and it's recently been upgraded to cope with the ever unfolding vistas of astronomy. Brian James talks to the people that make Jodrell Bank function. Scientists, engineers and maintenance personnel all contribute to an unusual behind the scenes glimpse of one of our most recognisable and best loved landmarks.
