  The current edition of "Prospero" (March)led me here. Although an ex- radio broadcast engineer by nature I found the content covers many areas of mutual interest and experience. Very well presented with good multimedia items. Will visit again soon.

  I found this site by accident when looking at history of the BBC. I love reading about the times that all the VT guys must have had working under the grounds of TV centre, must have been great . If you look on Youtube there are clips that VT made as a joke at Christmas time in 1979, and others. I love them and they are very funny, especially the Swap Shop one where Noel giggles and says merry chr" istmas to you all! Bri llia nt a nd very class ic.

  Just came across the site more or less by accident! Couldn't resist looking at the ETD pictures and there I am! TA15 front row 5th from left and I think back row 7th from left is Alan Wilson; C Course 4/3/64 I'm 7th from left middle row.

No connection with VT I'm afraid, other than from the studio/OB end. I was in Bristol at the time of the photo's, moved to Cradifff in the" "early 70s," ended up as an OD a nd have been freelanc e since 1 995 I d on 't do a lo t no w; jus t the od d day in th e Ca rdiff news studio. Hap py ( white powd er !) Chr istmas to one an d all

  A lovely site, I can reveal that one further left than Ed Wooden, on your TA17 first photo is me Mike Jones. Clearly not good enough to go into VT, I started off at AP, and then made my way in Ops at TC.

  I'm ex YTV, film sound to start with, then ENG, then OB manager, now freelance OB sound supervisor. What a tremendous site, thanks boys! Carrying the VERA demo around on my USB dongle to show people, what would Dimbleby and co. have made of that?! A fantastic research tool too! Is Ginger Cowgill still alive??

  What a lot of information and people whose names have almost slipped from memory - bit like Chroma90 I suspect
Good to see so many are still around and have an interest in those early days of VT
I am now retired having served 20 years at Woodnorton and then joining Cable & Wireless until it went down the pan so to speak.

  I worked mainly in Drama Serials AFM PA and then Director. Spent many happy hours in VT - always a pleasure to visit and one of the best parts of programme making. As a PA watched nervous editors in white gloves pulling a blunt razor blade across 2" tape and then the pleasure of making my shows better 'down in VT' with somebody tapping a pencil at the moment of the proposed cut. Not" sure that the 'avid' type sys tem is a much 'fun'.< br>What e ver hap pen ed to the Ch rist mas ta pes? are they sti ll mad e?

Really ni ce t o see the site and sa y h ell o to VT again. A few memories on my si te w ww .m ich aelbr ia nt .com but mainly s ail ing stori es th es e da ys . ..
