  An Amazing Site. I was a VT Boy, BH LLandaff Cardiff, late 1988 to Summer 1995. I was particularly AMAZED to see a shot of a BVH1100. No door says 'non A' to me, we had two I think numbered 198, 199 (?), also ten BVH1100A and Four BVH2000. I arrived in time for the last two weeks of film processing and my first transmissions were from two Rank Cintel Mk3 Jump Scan Tks.

  This year marks the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Ampex VR1000. The Santa Clara (California) chapter of the IEEE, in conjunction with the San Francisco section of SMPTE unveiled a Historical Milestone plaque at Stanford University, where there is one of the first VR1000s on display. Here is the link to a 30 minute documentary I made with footage of the event and reminiscences from people, including Fred Pfost, the last surviving member of the original development team.
Please forgive my "stealing" John Naull's animation from the Christmas tape so many years ago.
You can find the video on YouTube here

  Just seen the old video of Ron Nelmes in 1967 at the BBC. How wonderful to see Ron I knew him well when he was an Engineer at Westcountry Television and has brought back many happy memories.
A wonderful chap who taught me a lot about broadcasting.

  What a superb site. I have retired now. I feel really privileged to have worked at the BBC from 1981 to 2010 as engineer and editor and to have witnessed much of what is shown here.
A fine historical document , both personal and public.
Kind regards

  What a wonderful website. I worked in BBC Tel OB's from joining from A79 until resources sold out to SIS Live etc. Very many happy memories with Ampex VPR2's and Sony BVH2000's and 3100's and then the digital age took over. Well done to all who have contributed to this historical record of a golden age in Television. When one was proud to work for the BBC.

  I'm Bob Dinsmore's sister. My husband met Sam Seal yesterday who told us about your site. I've greatly enjoyed looking through it and have added the address I gave at his Thanksgiving Service to the notice of his death.

The clip of Late Night Dropouts was splendid! Unfortunately it freezes towards the end. Is this intentional or is there a fix?

  Just had a shock while an old 1979 episode of TOTPs was on in the background.
As Fischer Z finished their awful single pull back to reveal what
looked like "Dave Thrower", VT Shift 2, looking over his shoulder
straight into the camera.

Was I right or just hallucinating?

Cheers Steve Mott VT Shift 1 79-83 (TK 77-79)

  I'm a 19-year-old American college student majoring in electronic media and broadcasting. I find this site a fascinating resource for seeing what magic the VT technicians worked back in the day. Sure wish I had been around for the "tape era".

(If it makes any difference, I found this site courtesy of the 1979 VT Christmas tape on YouTube...)

  What a wonderful site. I was a member of the VT gang for just a few years (1979-82) at the beginning of my career, but still remember the place fondly.
