    Yep. Unnecessary is an absolute absence of necessity. The degree of

    Aah, I see! It's OK for you to generalise about media students but not for
    me to generalise about old farts.
    Any cretin can be taught how to coil a cable. Creativity is the gold dust
    that the clients pay for. Do you seriously want to be surrounded by a bunch
    of cable winding drones who don't have an ounce of creativity?

    But as you mention it, we do ensure that all our students know how to wind
    cables and identify various pieces of equipment. But no course can teach
    them everything, Perhaps you expect too much or are not prepared to do any
    of the teaching yourself. Pity to waste all that knowledge you've

    And I'm sure today's youth will recall today's TV shows with exactly the
    same fondness.

    But of course! You're still welcome to my full CV if you'd like it. You
    might find that "interesting reading" too.

    The Last Post for Lord Darcy of Bree

    According to the staff list, you don't even have a job title.

    I find this very interesting...

    Why do you miss out the studio technician bit from your posting footer

    I haven't been one of them since 1970

    However, on to the main body of my Last Post...

    (Cue solo cornet, or trumpet if you prefer..)

    Be warned, there is a lot of p**s taking in the real world of broadcast

    I knew it, I knew it, you just couldn't resist correcting the link,
    hence the deliberate concatenation..!

    Can't get used to this cut and paste lark, but then I'm only a simple
    bear. You must be used to it, having all those Apple Avids at your
    disposal, it's a wonder any work gets done.

    Stanley Kubrick would be so proud of you, you are so easy to wind up.

    If you don't understand this, ask Dawn French.

    You asked for it, so here goes...

    This is what I found interesting..

    Not surprising really, interestingly, from your own documents, on the
    link and other related ones on your studio page, that you so graciously
    provided, you seem to be nothing more than a glorified storekeeper,
    dishing out equipment & fines for late return.

    It seems that you don't even teach !!

    I also note your apparent lack of broadcast TV experience, hence the
    "industry professional" bit earlier on in your posts.

    Radio, Cinema, Sound Supervisor ??

    Well tomorrow I'm off to earn another £350 for a days work as a

    I get £500 if I do Friday too.

    To paraphrase another postee, them what can do, them what can't teach,
    them what can't even teach mind the store !!

    Have a nice day...

    P.S. Can you not see we are having great fun winding you must be
    Humpty Dumpty, cos you fall for it every time ...

    I've decided to wait until near the end of the day to send this, I
    wonder how many times you've checked the group today.

    Never mind, only an hour or so 'til going home time.

    We're getting way off subject here, so no more posts, you'll be pleased
    to hear.

    I'll let you have the last word, as you seem to need to do that, if
    others will let you that is.

    Perhaps others are waiting in the wings to take up the thread, or is it
    now threadbare ?

    They have all weekend to add their comments, so you should have a good
    read on Monday, don't line up too many cable tidying up sessions.

    I've had enough fun for now, BYE

    PS: Concorde's x 3 land in a short while, so I'm off to see them, much
    more interesting, though perhaps not as amusing.

    Darcy xxxxx the ballerina is on board, I gather, so is Darcy a girl's
    name then ?

    Of course, this is all tongue in cheek, though I doubt you will see it
    that way.

    Best Wishes from Rupert the Bear

    Now Mr. Oakley, I wouldn't be throwing stones if I were you. The trail of
    information that you have so graciously provided about yourself on the
    internet is far more interesting than anything I could provide. Had any
    more luck with the ladies recently or are you just concentrating on the boys
    Surely you know what a Sound Supervisor is? In one of your posts you
    claimed to be one. Or was that just to impress the ladies?
    If you do a Friday, you mean they haven't confirmed? You can't be that

    So have I. It's been a hoot!
