Dan Cranefield writes about the time that MCR23 was pressed into service when the LMCR was damaged.

MCR23-Conversion
Ariel article MCR23 conversion.

“The Ariel article took place after the LMCR was involved in an accident (21 Aug 1975) on the way to a Z Cars shoot near Ascot and we had to convert MCR 23 (which, in the article appears to be still a monochrome scanner). I cannot remember what it was like but we installed the two Fernseh KCR 40 cameras and CCUs over one weekend so that it could be used from the Monday while the LMCR was repaired.”
