  Stumbled on this site and got sidetracked when I should have been doing something else! Joined Tel Rec in 1979 as a DE, worked in TK until 1981, then in VT Maint until 1983 when I went to TPC at LG as their VPR 'expert'!

  This site brought back so many memories of my days as a VT operator and editor in OZ, The 1970's BBCVT Xmas tape was a must have item back then as was all Xmas tapes, we should have kept them as they were the best.

  Thanks for a great site. I was good to see Brian Woodfield, who I had the pleasure of meeting when I attended a course at Franborough Tech where I was studying TV Production in 1992 or was it 1993!!!
Thanks for the insite into the world of VT

  Nice work guys. We just watched the first bbc recording of panorama in class. I am in TV school in South Africa. Thanks for showing us the efforts others have put into our industry to make it such a better one today! We are eternally grateful to them. Keep up the good work!

  Freelance Editor

Iím still at it Ė nearly 30 years on - but no longer in a in a darkened grubby room Ė Iím lucky enough to work 33 floors up in Canary Wharf, overlooking London (still canít open the bloody window though)!

I joined the BBC as an Engineer in 1978, aged 22, and later moved to VT operations shift 2 Ė now Iím old and Grey.

I still have my chinagraph handy but now I nee" d glasses to see the t ape.

I miss VT "13, Proc" Amps a nd duplex ch an geo vers ", t" ea t rolley s at 201 5 each ni gh t ex cept Sunda "ys, nowada" ys i tís 2 pas s vbr mpg en cod ing and H.264!! wit h upper odd f ield d omi nanc e! !! Wh at th e he ll is goi ng on? < br> But I bet I c ould s ti ll o perate an EECO VR20 0 s uite or TR 70 - c "ould you? (donít forget the demod balance)

Serious question though: when do you know itís the right time to retire from Editing, when did you hang up your last double ender, and clear the attic, and empty the trash?

I remember Pete Simmons and Bob Pratt Ė Pete was a right laugh and Bob loved his 60s music (good job to for the BBC archives)

Iím still available for bookings Ė FCP suite and Avid Ė canít be arsed with on-line anymore too much hassle and specifications, just do the off-line now - normal freelance rates apply + VAT.

  OK everybody now is your chance to spend your last days at Woodnorton. Richmond care homes are proposing to build a ďContinuing Care and Retirement CommunityĒ on the site of the old accommodation blocks (nothing new there) which it looks like they propose to demolish entirely. They are even going to demolish the Phoenix and replace it with gardens. Just think you might not even notice the d" ifference when your nu mber is fin ally up!|~ |http:// www.sbu sh .eclips e.c o. uk/ sb/s bho me.h tm

  I was delighted to see myself and others on the DE14 photo after 42 years! With 3 from Southampton College of Technology, I believe George Dubicki stayed some time at TC, but I went on to a very good career with Southern TV. Almost my last job was radio links at Highgate, within sight of AP where it all started. Full circle!

  Having worked twice for the BBC, first in TelRec as a Grade C enginner in Telecine, and 20 years later as Chief Engineer Television, I am proud to have had a small part to play in the history of videotape at the BBC, having been somewhat intstrumental in the introduction of digital videotape recording (D3)around 1991/2. Its great to see the spirit of VT at the Beeb lives on!
