March 21st 2009

While doing a regular check of the Links page recently, I noticed that the Museum of Editing, Jack Calaway’s site, had disappeared. This was a fascinating site describing some of the ‘devices’ that were used in the early days of editing. As well as Datatron, CMX and Convergence (the ECS103 -“beep … VTRs not in sync” – unforgettable if you experienced it!) there is a fascinating page on the editing of “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-in”. Thanks once more to the Internet Wayback Machine I have recovered 99% of it and restored the item on the Links page. Sadly Jack died eighteen months or so ago, and I have been trying to contact names of collaborators mentioned on the site, but to no avail. So, as a tribute to Jack Calaway who many of you may well have met, it is restored to its original state.
