BBC Power Generators article

Coming soon: Richard Harris looks at the history of the BBC’s generator trucks.

There were only ever ten of these as eventually the BBC simply hired generators from outside organisations.

Richard’s article relates everything that he could discover about each of the ten.

David Taylor’s Postfade website

Richard has been in contact with David Taylor who runs the PostFade website. On the site he looks at broadcast and recorded sound, exploring the techniques from the 1950s and 1960s to the present.

He joined the Anglia Television sound department in the summer of 1966 and closed his ‘Postfade Sound’ television post production suite in 2012.

The articles on his site are mainly concerned with sound, but cameras, vehicles and lighting also feature.
