Hi
I started at Abbey Road in 1965, and I never saw a 35mm machine, until Abbey Road started doing film scoring in the 80s
There were Studer J37s from 1964 on, and the Telefunken machines slightly predating the Studers would have been either the T9U or the M10

Hi Ted:

But 35 millimeters = 1.37795276 inches.

So either the reporter completely confused what he was seeing (or hearing) or there was 35mm film in 
use.

Are there any Abbey Road veterans from that time on the list?
