While 2002 is considered "recent" in CCTV history, I still recall the archaic tasks assigned to cablecast interns of that era. Among them was having to hold up these cue cards to let BeLive producers know how many minutes were left for their live show. Nowadays, the cue cards have been replaced by a digital clock display and an auto timer message system. But I still get a kick out of seeing these cue cards tucked away in a corner of the cablecast room.
Another item in cablecast soon to be of a past era: Our clunky Tiltrac tape robot! Technology has changed things for the better at CCTV's programming department.
