Tape recording: there were no tape machines in
studios up to the middle 1960s so all recording and editing was done in remote
channels. This is recording channel E7 in 1965 - a horrible
ill-ventilated channel between S3 and S4, with windows into their
cubicles and tie-lines to enable tapes to be played in. It had three
BTR2s and a pair of Prestos, hence the complex linking panel.
