| Murgatroyd Broadcast Engineering Limited | is a small sound, television and film production facility within the market town of Dolgellau, Gwynedd.
Malcolm Murgatroyd runs a small team of people who create broadcast media, from podcasts to small cinematic short-film productions, for a variety of professional clients. MBE Limited can either operate from their studio or out on location.
The key members of the team are:
Malcolm J Murgatroyd (Director)
Malcolm has a sizeable background in many aspects of technical broadcast engineering having worked within the industry for over forty years. He has owned and run two music recording studios, owned two record labels, designed and operated a large rock PA system and has worked in virtually all aspects of the film industry, including writing and directing ‘film shorts’ and behind-the-scenes productions for well-known movie industry companies. As an electronics engineer, he is responsible for designing and constructing several ground-breaking scientific instruments used in world leading research by a university here in Wales. Malcolm’s down-time is taken up with his fine-art photography, making a name for himself in this field during the 1980s and beyond.
