How Does One Decide to Get into the Biz?

June 1977 - OECA Videotape Editing Room - Day

In the interest of small talk I asked a producer how she got into the television business:

The lady had been visiting BBC Television Centre as part of a tour; a studio door was open and she saw a "Jon Pertwee" Doctor Who story being recorded. That was it.

At that time, the Ontario Educational Communication Authority television network was running Pertwee-era episodes, which made the producer's story even more dimensional for me.
