Sometimes recording on 2″ videotape did not go well, and the programme ended up literally on the floor!
The following comments were left on the Pebble Mill Facebook Group:
Lynn Cullimore: “but you brilliant VT men always sorted it out didn’t you? Little geniuses…when often it was directors and producers who got the credit.”
Keith Brook: “I bet that was a stunt to scare the xxxt out of a director. The accompanying words were ‘Ah, I think the machine has chewed the only copy of your programme’.”
