Regarding running mag thru a cleaner.....  Errr, well a long time ago,
during a rather pressing afternoon there was a slight miscommunication
with a then trainee colourist (Now rather good and well respected man in

London), who promptly ran the feature film and mag track thru the
cleaner before I transferred it.  Have to say that I heard good clean
sound and no damage seemed to be done!
