It was in the 1980's I remember that instead of seeing Look North (Leeds) we got Newsroom South East for a couple of days. Its fascinating to see how back then the Beeb (IMHO) totally reliant on the London feed. Was that the same for ITV and Thames?
As Mr Inspector says,
Surely that should be Mr Sands, or the Inspector!
I heard him announced for during a fire drill at Manchester Piccadilly around 18 months back, he must be important
I actually saw them at the time. I should have been in bed, but sneaked up. And I caught them on video.
A few geeky shots of a shooting monitor there. 50fps (so it was shot progressive? I don't think you'd use 50fps to describe 50i) and a 1/60 shutter speed, shot with the X-OCN LT video codec.
I used to record stuff in LP, though years later when it comes to watching it back, it's shocking how poor the quality is, especially the sound. Plus often issues playing the tapes back properly on VCRs other than the one originally used. I am still impressed by how good VHS Hi-Fi audio is though... if you had a machine which could record and play it back anyway.
Apparently, NTSC SP on VHS was about 50% faster than PAL SP, so I'm presuming the picture and sound quality must have been higher to an extent. Obviously NTSC has a higher frame rate (though a lower resolution), but only 20% not 50%, so the extra speed must have made some difference, especially with the linear audio track.
can you upload it please?
I'm not uploading old family videos to here, no
Yes, ITV did turn it down, and it ended up on BBC1 - as did the spin-offs from the USA and Russia. Granada also made 7 Up 2000 for BBC1, but that was commissioned by the BBC and continued on there. Actually there should be another instalment of that next year, not that anyone remembers it's still going.
Speaking of which, it's supposed to be the conclusion of Child of Our Time this year, isn't it?
Did anyone remember that was even still going? They seemed to give up on it after a few years.
Are you Lee90 on Digitalspy? He makes about 5 posts like this every day in the Classic Eastenders thread.

Interesting how many of the characters in that episode are dead. Frank, Peggy, Pat, Roy, Barry, Steven, Lucy, Jim, Mel, Charlie, Laura, Jamie. Albert Square really doesn't have a good life expectancy.
