Submitter: I took TV Production in high school during my freshman year (1999-2000), so this book brought up a lot of nostalgia for me. Of course, that was over twenty years ago (which was about how long ago this book last checked out), so this really doesn’t have any application for my students. Somehow this never got weeded, even when the school went 1:1 iPad. I have no idea how long it’s been since there were last VHS tapes and VCRs on our campus, but it’s been a long time. While this might be fun for someone who’s really interested in the history of TV production, this book is completely out of date for any practical application. (The school is a 6-12 independent school.)
Holly: Even 1998 was the tail end of the VHS/VCR game. DVDs came out in 1997, and DVD production surpassed VHS by 2002. This book had about five good years, and maybe five more lingering years after that. It did not have 22 years, so let’s all say goodbye and not look back.
