Electronic mail kept the wheels turning this Christmas while many media people spent more time at home. For example, the camera script for the live outside broadcast in Whistle Test on New Year's Eve was sent over Telecom Gold by producer Tom Corcoran. He had received the lyrics, running order and band details from Kim Wilde's manager, who is also on Telecom Gold.
Contributors to this week's Computer Guardian using Telecom Gold were Paul Fischer, 83:JNL049; David Hewson, 81:JET707; David Price: 72:MAG036; Maggie McLening, 83:JNL138; Jack Schofield, 83:JNL020, and Steve Gold, 83:NTG309, who sent the above story about email via email.
