  1. I remember TK in Southampton where I was an engineer and the demands of the local news were hysterical with little time available for ‘grading’, constant locking and unlocking of the sepmag,amzing embarassment if the film broke because the TK was part of the studio gallery so’help’ and panick stricken directors were close at hand! You had it easy at pebble Mill!
