CONTROL ROOM - MULTI-CONTROL POSITION


MCP

A nightmare job: the multi-control position which replaced individual control positions for networks. This panel could handle six networks, with pre-programmed switching: sequential monitoring changed networks on the speaker every ten seconds and drove the operator mad. The Ferrograph tape recorder on the bay was for making reference recordings, not for broadcast tapes. Photo taken in May 1966. MCP was replaced by studios going straight to line a few years later.
