Almost all of us watch TV or listen to the radio, and many know where our favourite soaps are made, but how many of us know about a vital cog in the system - transmitting stations?
In the age of catch-up TV and super-fast mobile internet, where many of us are turning to watch our TV, they also provide a mobile signal to millions. They can be taller than skyscrapers, older than The Beatles, and some of them look a bit like the Eiffel Tower.
