Dramsoc report: 1981

Sunday, January 5th, 2020

Dramsoc was featured a lot on STOIC and if I can access all of the tapes then there will be around 14 reports in total. STOIC first reported on Dramsoc in March 1975, with the last card index listing as March 1985. So, a ten year period of students producing drama at Imperial College and also captured by students on videotape.

This report from December 1981 sees Tracy Poole on stage talking to Chris Barton.

    Hi Colin

    Been looking through your posts and being amazed at what has survived. Do you still have any 1″ Ampex originals? I now have the potential to recover these with a modified C format machine.

    My latest thing is this, soon-to-be charity where we’re preserving boradcast engineering heritage: http://www.becg.org.uk
    While we don’t have Ampex 7003 etc we do have a selection of C format machines plus a lot of expertise.

    Hi Jeff,

    Yes, a great deal is still there and vast amounts to come on this blog as well.

    I have recently been contacted by a well-known UK Preservation and Recovery Archive who have the capabilities to transfer our Ampex One Inch type A videotapes both in low and high band, and with ‘baking’ facilities too.

    Later in the Spring we are going to follow this up, because I have been given funding to achieve this.
