Early version of the Master Log courtesy of Peter Croft In the late 1960’s, TVW embraced early data processing techniques, where the program and advertising information was entered onto IBM punch cards, and then manually sorted into a deck of cards representing every on-air event taking place in a given day.

When we were given our new ‘golf ball’ typewriters we were ecstatic, although we still needed to type six copies at a time (with carbon paper between the pages when doing reports) and not being able to make mistakes certainly honed our skills to be accurate with our typing. … We were often called on to do other jobs as well and had many fun times helping out the producers on outside broadcasts, hosting at the special events (like the Sandover Medal) held in the studios, the Sales Christmas party in the Studio Grounds every year, Miss West Coast, ushering at big events and answering the phones and working at Telethon, etc.
