Right, only two monitors. Current, and upcoming.
But if something was not right, they'd have to be damn fast about it!

A book quoted there even says that it wasn't possible to cut until after the war, so they could only mix (AKA dissolve)!

Preview and Transmission monitors, and if something did go wrong, that's how it went out I suppose.

Yes just mixing in those early days.

In that section about "Clive Of India", that complex scene with telecines, captions and action, just goes to show the amazing techniques they were experimenting with, at that early time.

Eustace Robb had laid the groundwork for Television production between 1932 and '35, including fades to the caption machine.
