John Watkinson on Helicopters – RTS-TVC Christmas Lecture

These are just a few of the questions answered by industry guru John Watkinson as he takes us on a deep and insightful journey of helicopter design at this year’s RTS-TVC Christmas Lecture on Wednesday 13th December, 7pm, Pincents Manor, Reading.

The theory and dynamics of helicopter flight are complex. But in his no-nonsense plain-speaking style Watkinson will de-mystify the concepts of rotary flight, and explain in lay-man’s terms how a helicopter operates.


With over 40 award wins it is one of the most decorated children’s shows of all time - four successive BAFTA’s and a Prix Jeunesse for best children’s show of the last 50 years

Join us for an evening with the creators of Horrible Histories - the producers, historians, writers, composers, and stars - as they talk us through what makes the show so unique, and what has kept it running into its 7th series. With plenty of discussion and clips to illustrate.


We have two very well connected speakers, one from a Corporate IT outsource company (Ramsac) and the other from one of the UK’s major broadcasters (Arqiva).

Robert May will discuss the subject from the Corporate Network aspect, covering all essential good practice and encouraging us to prepare for GDPR, which will be law on May 25, 2018. (feel free to edit)
