Throwback Thursday Part 2 throws up a video that has some truth to it.

The Aussie News Cameraman

I witnessed a young Foozle get into a night club in the early 90’s and dance with a Sony BVP-701 BETACAM camera on his shoulder. He did walk away with a girl on his arm at the end of the night, in between getting a call out to a house fire and a school arson.

So here is Part 2 of our Throwback Thursday collection:

From the 1987 HSV Channel Seven (Melbourne) Christmas Tape.
The local news camera boys have a certain swagger, style and sophistication that is all their own. Could an average man obtain this aspirational lifestyle merely by shouldering a TV news camera?

Thanks Peter LTD for the video.
