Re: Japan 'to stop making VCR machines'

I still maintain some s-vhs machines to transfer none commercial VT content. This is becoming less now a day sadly, however I did move some Yorkshire TV studio outtakes material for a retired VT editor 18 months ago.

Re: The Wright Way

It seems to have been given a fair old bashing by some of the critics....quite rightly IMHO To be honest I expected what I got, very easy viewing with no complex clever hummer. If you were around 17 with zero life experience then yes you might have found some parts worth a laugh or two, however wit...

Re: Milo O'Shea, actor

Milo O'Shea died aged 86 in New York. I was watching him in 'Come Buttercup Come Daisy' the Out of the Unknown season 1 episode only last week. Aged 86, a good age like so many Irish people seem to achieve. I lived in the middle of Ireland during 2006 and loved it very much. The farmers in their 40...

Re: And so, goodbye TC

As a BBC Graphic Assistant in the late 1990s I was charged to Sports department at £35 per hour. That "money" went to Graphic Design Department. In turn they paid me £8 an hour but couldn't make a profit as it cost them £42 an hour to employ me under the Producer Choice rules. These were figures gi...

Re: Jonathan Creek-the Clue of the Savant's Thumb

It was all right, not the best episode ever, but not bad. Jonathan's new life seemed very depressing, though. They did make an attempt at the end to make his wife seem a bit more sympathetic, but I couldn't help but hope any further episodes release him from this hellhole! Yes, did not find it like...

Re: And so, goodbye TC

as it was heavily discounted when staff claimed before the official due date. A mad system, probably government originated. When I accepted redundancy in 2001, they were eager enough to get rid of people that they were offering "pension as if you were 60 if you go now". I went with alacrity at 53. ...

Re: And so, goodbye TC

I'm now working full time as a library assistant in Fleet Street and loving almost every moment (apart from the crappy rush-hour tube journeys). Great to hear your working full time. When you left the BBC you said you had taken your BBC pension early. Something you were not too happy about as it wa...

Re: Sherlock Holmes

I adore the Cushing series. Being a traditional multi-camera drama with location inserts it's very different to the filmed Brett series in it's style and execution. I couldn't pick one over the other if I had to chose, and it's a crying shame many of the Cushing series episodes are lost. I got to t...

Hi Bob,
Did you end up at the Channel 4 Presentation Graphics. Red Bee, or not?
