Lovely Documentary about AIR Lyndhurst studios in London

A nice look inside one of the two "London Meccas" of orchestral recording, AIR Lyndhurst, the other being Abbey Road, of course:
Did you get the best comment? The wonderful Neve analgue console. It sounds wonderful because it doesn't do anything to the signal - all the other do. It needs new rotary controls that are the wiper and resistor stepped type - they sourced the spares and are building them, and fitting them and it will take a year! Many years back I was actually there for a session - it just sounded so big!

There's another video where you can see how they actually record orchestral sessions - with the producer doing his stuff and people updating clicks and going back and forth - the recording process is really interesting.
