"Yes, Bernard. Great memories. That looks like a newer RCA quad machine."

Apologies for going so far off topic, but you did put it in your sig.

That's a Ampex AVR2. The BBC was full of them, and all of ours had the footbrake that he mentions. I was never an editor, but I spent a lot of my youth in editing areas at the BBC as a producer making promotions -







Though that was probably 1" or D3, 2" was the environment where I learned to make quick decisions, owing to the fact that changing tapes often took more time than editing the clips. I only started editing myself when non-linear came along, first on Eidos Optima, then on all flavours of FCP up to 7. Then Edius and PPro.
