Alan Beswick the Radio and TV presenter introduced The Holy Cross Folk Group at Preston Guildhall as part of a Banardos Charity Concert and couldn't resist making reference to actor Len Fairclough, my namesake. This concert was video'd which was a novelty at the time. In fact Dixon's had to duplicate the tapes as they were not yet in every household. We bought our first VHS recorder at £600 shortly after this and it cost 3 times more than the average machine, but it did have editing, stereo and many other advanced features. I used this machine to edit many of my early films using crash editing techniques and audio dubs.Despite the quality of the machine these features were hard to get until the PC opened up a new world of video making.
