Oh, Maggie Hindmarsh at Ally Pally!  How nice to see her remembered here.  I was a rookie sound recordist, in my first position operating the six foot tall sepmag machine adjoining the news dubbing theatre.

Her initiative was amazing:  in came silent footage of a marching army.  The pace didn't match anything in the FX library, so dear Maggie put on a disc of a cement mixer and worked the rotary fader - crunch, crunch, crunch.   Perfect, met the approaching 6pm deadline and entirely without rehearsal. Bless her kind and gentle soul.
