We want to hear from anyone with an interest in television history, but we are particularly keen to reach out to current and former television production staff.

This includes floor managers, camera operators, video tape editors, runners, PAs, and anyone else who has been involved in ‘behind the scenes’ aspects of television production.

In addition to interviewing retired television production staff, we also want to talk to people who still work in the industry, in order to understand recent changes in technology and practice.

If you can assist us in our effort to preserve the history of British television production technology, please email us at
