Barrie Edgar produced some really innovative TV OBs including the first live relay from a Cross Channel Ferry. He related some of the challenges, especially having to cut away from the camera covering the commentator, Peter West, and his interviews as the great sea swell took its toll on their stomachs! This picture from a BBC publication in the early 60s (price 2/6!) shows a more mundane booking with Barrie at work.
