The photos are of a studio recording in VT E between 1990-2. Editor, Nigel Evans is on the left, then Simon Bennett, with director, Philip Thickett on the right. You can see the machine room through the window on the left hand-side.
The second photo also shows Nigel Evans in VT E. The recording looks to be of a cookery programme, possibly ‘Hot Chefs’. You’ll also notice an owl soft toy on top of the monitor. The owl still exists somewhere. The owl has two eyes, a red and a green one. If it lit up red it would signify a non PAL edit IIRC!
Thanks to Paul Vanezis for adding information about these photos.
