XM's for BBC Outside Broadcast

Came across this today

Broadcast Engineering Conservation Group
"The Roving Eye" - new compilation, July 2020.

Not just the well-known DS, but lots of other Citroens too.
Scroll down through the photos.
Some CX/XM confusion there, but Beeb O.B. were obviously fond of them.
Wonder if they ran on comfort spheres?
