Some month’s ago, following Bob Oakley’s “Story of Film Recording”, I threw down the challenge to some of the ex Telecine Oldboys to produce a similar thing.
Bill Tucker has now come up with two excellent pieces, “Bill Tucker at the BBC”, and “Life as a TK Operator“, both of which you will find in The 1960s.
(Additional detail supplied by John Crane, Lawford Thomas and Jim Tucker)

billBill, pictured right driving TK1 at Lime Grove, covers the years from 1951 to 1988, and the story overlaps nicely with Arthur Dungate’s Direct Television from Alexandra Palace, which you can find in The 1950s.
