The history of electronics moves to the videotape or magnetic recording. Sound recording on disk goes back before the birth of the wireless and there were some magnetic sound recorders used in the ...BBC in the 1940s. This programme traces the development of early broadcast videotape from VERA which was developed by BBC engineers and features interviews with Don Kershaw of the BBC and Ray Dolby who originally worked with Ampex and went on to develop the Dolby "A" recording system.
