Ok folks, its history minute. Your humble scribe (yeah right!) used to man=

 masses in Britain. Picture was 35mm lo-con graded print, and we did live=
 on-air color correction. Quality was *awesome*. Now this was in the days=
 when men were men , er, sorry, person were persons. None of your=
 namby-pamby Dodgy-scans or your wimpy color correctors.
Shrotly after this time, the Beeb decided that airing directly off film was=
 too risky, so put everything to 1" first. Spineless bunch!!
