Re: B&W portable streaming camera + kit from 1960s

That is a great article! Thanks Chris.

I note the use of microwave links evident in many of the photos... along with firetruck extendable ladders on some OB trucks, and a tripod-mounted microwave dish in the last photo that looks identical to OB gear in use when I was getting started in the 70s.

Re: B&W portable streaming camera + kit from 1960s

Making me feel old. I started in the '66. Hasn't technology changed. In '66 I could buy a house in Clifton Down, Bristol in the UK for around 5000 pounds Stirling. Just down Whiteladies road at the BBC studios the first color cameras were coming in. A camera chain was about 100,000 pounds. You had to be the Almighty or one of his off-siders to touch one.

Today houses in Clifton Down, Bristol are around 1 to 2.5 million pounds and I can buy a 2,000 pound camera that would kill the original 100,000 color cameras we had.

As Bob said "The times they are a'changin."
