    Here's a collection of the best behind-the-scenes shots on The Dick Van Dyke Show I've ever seen, courtesy of historian and expert Terry Wilkie on the Eyes of a Generation group on Facebook...

    Those are 3 Mitchell BNC cameras on Chapman crab dollies, at one of the stages at Desilu Cahuenga (near Melrose Avenue in Hollywood). Note the metal pipe above the kitchen set on the far right, which holds some additional lighting gear. The far left camera generally filmed the medium shots for the right-side characters, the middle camera captured the wide shots, and the far right camera got the medium shots for the left-side characters. Within a few years, most film sitcoms started shooting with 4 cameras (I think mirroring what was done on videotape sitcoms like the 1970s Norman Lear shows). The thick cables carried power and communication from the camera coordinator to the camera operators; within about 10-15 years, they started using a video assist system that helped the camera operators get the shots more accurately.

    This I believe was the far left set on the stage, where they had the "Writers Office" for the fictitious Alan Brady Show. In general, TV sets are not lit this way nowadays: in the 1960s, they used "hard lights" that had to be meticulously aimed and prepared. Now, they use softer lights to help flatter the actors and make the set more even and not as hot. (It helps that modern cameras are a lot more sensitive and don't require as much light as 1965 B&W film).

    This is a dramatic low angle of the A&B cameras shooting the living room set. I'm surprised to see a 250-watt Mole-Richardson light hanging off the A camera on the far left.

    Director (and sometimes featured player) Jerry Paris stands in between two cameras shooting a bedroom scene. Note the big fill lights just above the lens, which provided closer soft light for the actors.

    Thank you for this. Now I know where Elvis Costello got the phrase 1 over the 8.

    I presume it was a common British phrase before this article.

    I'd love to see Art School of Blood, where Bob Ross kills art critics and holds classes on how to paint their corpses.
