As someone with friends who are offline editors in TV post I realised my
error after sending the e-mail :o) I guess the point I was miserably failing
at trying to make, was that by disabling Javascript you're in an ever

Also note that whilst Beta formats continued to enjoy popularity for industrial
applications, it wasn't much fun growing up in the 80s/90s as the kid in the
class whose parents remained committed to their Betamax or Laserdisc
