These photos of are dubbing mixer, Dave Baumber, taken around 1976. The top photo was taken in the room next to the mixer area, which housed the sepmag bays. The bottom photo was taken in the dubbing theatre. Dave mixed a myriad of programmes at Pebble Mill, both dramas and factual programmes. He was certainly one of Pebble Mill’s best dubbing mixers, and was frequently requested by producers and directors.
Dave moved up to Birmingham, from working at the BBC in London in the 1970s in the early days of Pebble Mill. He worked on many of the English Regions Drama department productions.
