Room 12. Delia edits a tape as Desmond stands in front of the Leevers-Rich 8-track and reads the script. The adjustable 'script racks' above the Philips tape machines have three studs, often used to hold green, red and yellow 'leader tape'. Each machine has a splicing block at the front and a splicing tape dispenser on the side. 'Opening' the rotary output fader, controlled by the large knob on the front of each machine, usually starts the tape moving as well. These machines are fitted with carbon-track faders to avoid fader 'stud noise'. This studio, seen here in 1965, looked much the same a decade later.
