For radio and recording enthusiasts Introduced by John Borwick
THE MICROPHONE AS EAR
Why don't they just put a mike in the best seat in the stalls and record the music that way?
The question is often asked. But a microphone does not behave precisely like a pair of ears plus a brain. It cannot make its own selection of sounds. In using microphones to best advantage, the engineer must rely largely on his ears and judgment.
JOHN BORWICK has talked about some of the problems of music balancing with R. S. C. GUNDRY , a BBC engineer concerned with microphones and studios for sound broadcasting

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
