'Things we forgot we knew' was one of the themes of Alan Roberts' recent talk to the Bristol Centre. Familiar to many from his talks at IBC, Alan is one of the pioneer workers on HD cameras, the expert behind the 'BBC settings' for HD photography, and is the recipient of the 2009 Guild of TV Cameramen Award for contributions to the art and science of TV camerawork.
The Bristol Centre presents the Sir AMBROSE FLEMING MEMORIAL AWARD for outstanding contribution to television in the RTS Bristol area.
The award was established in 1960, to recognise achievement in television by those in our area. Since then it has been awarded 26 times. Competition is very stiff, with all the strengths of achievements made by teams and individuals in the Bristol region we are never short of contenders.
