  These seem to have been taped interviews, and the underscores are words
that, for some reason, were unintelligble to the transcriber. A couple of
them you can guess out of context - one or two are rather obscure
technical terms that got 'lost' due to background noise or Ken coughing or
not e-nun-ci-at-ing properly...

 Quite a fascinating piece, though it would have been nicer (IMHO) had the
interviewer had a bit more engineering knowledge - but c'est la vie in
these matters, as previous long threads (DO NOT start a new one!!) about
media encounters would seem to suggest.
