Derek Hobson
Derek Hobson in action - I think he's reading the news.
Camera 2 is pointing at Derek - looks like the other camera is pointing towards someone else.

The Golden Shot
Behind the scenes at the Golden Shot. Notice the two different type of dollies (a dolly is the stand a camera sits on).
This looks to be an earlier picture than above - the identification on the cameras is different than on later ones.

The caption from the book reads: "Technical staff check on the monitor pictures in the telecine control area
