For the second year in a row, GUST’s entry to the charities float competition was crowned winner in 1978. GUST’s column in the Glasgow University Guardian (25 February 1978) documented the result along with other announcements about the station. GUST was awarded a barrel of beer, and apologised for the drop in picture quality due to its consumption. The float contained a Dalek, Tardis, K9 and, of course, Doctor Who himself.
Thanks to Moira MacVicar (GUST 1975-1978) for bringing these events to our attention.
