Images of the console at the BBC VFX Exhibition at the Science Museum in 1972:

This console, I believe, was later rehomed at the Blackpool Doctor Who exhibition, whilst the Longleat version used a smaller copy.

That's a nicer control room than Pertwee had for most of his run.

And some lovely shots of the wonderful Katy.
The team look like they're having fun!

Agreed! I am surprised as to how well finished the exhibitions props are.

I like the roundels, too!

I was looking through some Inferno rehearsal photos and noticed that the computers from the exhibition console room were on set!

That's a really clear picture. I don't recall seeing it before, was it on the DVD?
