Yes Mike, The Hour. Actually it's a well made series, I think one problem is that these days websites etc even in Europe equate Graflex Pacemaker cameras as being the main Press cameras of the post war period through to perhaps the late 1960's. They were imported into the UK but not in large numbers and Rolleiflexes and even Leica's were in use in Fleet sStreet by the mid 1950's.
By 1939 smaller formats were already used by some UK press photographers and that would haveaccelerated during and after WWII.
I should have added that in other scenes there are more cameras, a 120 folder on a journalists desk which the Head of News picks up and comments about dust on the lens, and there's cameras hanging by their straps on a hook in the newsroom, one's a TLR but it could be anything fro a Six-20 Brownie to a twin lens Contalex (it has a chrome faceplate).
