Don't even get me started!
Quote:The article says that with color TV that nobody would want to watch black and white shows and at that point the recordings did take up a fair bit of space. So in some ways I get it but it is shocking now.
It's a bit more complicated that that. Incompetence played a part. in the case of Pamela Nash, OVER competence played a part. And there were other things factored in there, such as deals production companies had in place with the unions. A bit of a mess, really.
Quote:Same with film, although no recorded over, it seems a fair number of movies have been lost to neglect of just being shoved in the basement of the studio often leaving them more vulnerable to fire, flooding and so on.
Yeah. A HUGE shame to have lost so much.
Quote:Thankful for what survived but still it is sad that so much was lost.
Yes such short sighted behavior back then is indeed sad.
