Notes from My Father’s Diary…

February 1951.  A typical BBC television studio when in broadcast consists of five cameras in use: a close-up and long range on the performer, a superimposing camera for the scenery, and cameras for titles and announcer. The sound system is completely independent and uses three microphones.  The Producers sit high above the studio in a control room, and it is interesting to note that gauze is used over the ceiling-hung studio lamps to provide a flat even lighting to the stage below.
