Roger Jelbert's web pages for this'n'that ...


Welcome to my personal website which I have created to preserve my late brother's Jelbert family research.
I am a retired broadcasting engineer and video-tape editor. (whatever happened to video tape !)

I was born in Cornwall but moved away at eighteen to my first job in the BBC in Bristol. Next,I lived in Southampton for nearly twenty-five years and then in Winchester for ten where I worked as a media technician at the university college (now Winchester University). I've now retired to Cornwall and live with my partner Annie in Goldsithney.

Apart from the odd walk and regular swim I enjoy playing drums in the "BLOOZE" band. I am a member of the Cornwall Austin 7 Club (CA7C) and have a 1933 PD Austin 7 tourer and a 1938 Ruby. I'm interested in the history of Cornish mining and am a member of the Carn Brea Mining Society. I am now the webmaster for their website.

I've had a resurgence of interest in clocks - especially electrical master clocks and have started a sort of blog on the progress of a DIY clock.
