Kevin Harris would like any information concerning Alan Partridge's Jovilabe (an orrery used for determining the positions of the satellites that surround the planet Jupiter). He remembers seeing it in an issue of Meccano Magazine, as pictures from an exhibition, and remembers seeing it as parts from Mr Partridge's legacy, but he can't find these photos anymore. If anyone has any further information on the Partridge orrery, please contact Kevin at kevinharris143@btinternet.com.
