FLASHBACK #247: CBC VCR/KELOWNA ENG SHOOT 1999/2000 NEW YEAR'S EVE

PHOTO FLASHBACK #247 
KELOWNA, B.C., ENG SHOOT 1999/2000 NEW YEAR’S EVE from Alan Stewart

Cameraman Alan Stewart has submitted the following  photograph for our second Flashback of the New Year and it takes us back to the beginning of this new century twenty years ago. 

Alan made some enquiries about the photo to Neil Trainer and Dick Schaber who were part of the team pictured.  Both responded that it was from New Year’s Eve 1999/2000 when there was great  speculation about what would happen when the dates on all computers changed over to the new century.  Very anti-climatic as it turned out!  The crew were in Kelowna and Neil Trainer recalls it was “damn cold” because of the wind down by the lake. There is one person at the table whose name we don’t have, so if you can identify the Kelowna Radio Reporter, please contact https://goo.gl/QNvaxu,  Thank you!

 

L-R around the table:  Ken Stewart (Director), Paul Wong (ENG Editor), Belle Puri (Television Reporter),  ?  (CBC Kelowna Radio Reporter), Alan Stewart (Cameraman), Rick Zimmerman (Audio) [partially hidden behind Alan and Neil], Neil Trainer (Cameraman) and Dick Schaber (Maintenance).
