Grapevine Managers

From YSTV History Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Grapevine was the YSTV advertising and sustainer service broadcast on the network during the day from 1987 until it was re-branded Inform, initially as an internal naming convention in 2003/04 and then accompanied by (another) re-write of the back end in 2005.

The service started with the arrival of the Genlock on a BBC Model B computer which enabled its output to be synchronised with YSTV's vision mixer. This was the early days of microcomputers and the BBC was a crash-prone machine, as demonstrated by Malcolm Heath in [1].



Note: The years for officerships are given from AGM to AGM, not the University Year, to save too many overlaps (otherwise most posts would be listed for two different years). To make it obvious where there are joint officerships vs. changes in officers, use "and" and "then". Use {{Vacant}} to denote when an officership has been left unfilled after an election (as opposed to being unfilled between an officer stepping down and the next election). Thank you!
