Voices Over the Horizon: Tales from Cable and Wireless
by David Souden

History of Cable & Wireless company, tales from many employees, an interesting read, with b/w and colour photographs

"A vast resource of information: eye-witness accounts of historical travel, geography, communications, wars and disasters.

The company's life, and life with the company, from the 1940s to the 1970s.

By turns funny, sad, admirable, frightening, foolhardy, adventurous and romantic.

What better way to record the history of a groundbreaking communications company than through the voices of its people: the company's pioneers, who set up the communications networks in far-flung areas of the world, and kept them going against the odds?

Cable & Wireless approved of this innovative approach and commissioned an oral history, Voices Over the Horizon. BPC handled every stage, from selecting the author, Dr David Souden, and designing and copy-editing the book, through to publishing, publicity, warehousing and distribution."
