Does anyone have information on filming techniques during the Doctor Who TV series, or know where such information can be found?

I'm particularly interested in the 4th Doctor era, 1974 - 1981.

Information I'm looking for includes whether they used film (e.g. 35mm), magnetic tape, or other method. Also information on cameras, audio equipment, etc.

My Google-fu is letting me down, so anything would be appreciated.

  • DVD commentaries on Dr. Who frequently include such information, including whether film or video was sued for specific scenes. – Tom Harrington Nov 12 '18 at 3:49

IMDB has this information.

According the linked page from 1963 to 1985 they used 16mm film for exterior (outdoor) scenes and location shots which I believe means non-studio shots. Video was used for interior shots. The BBC was known for shooting video indoors and film outdoors.
