Time Capsule returns to Stobswell

The Dundee Channel’s long running video series Time Capsule stops off at the Forte Cafe in Stobswell this week for a candid chat with present owner Wendy Caithness who’s been involved in the business since she was at school. Now as owner of the business she has fond memories of her time working for Mr Forte, who now in his 90’s was unable to take part in the recording. The Time Capsule series recently restarted production of the hugely popular series which began in 1999 on VHS cassettes (remember those) putting Dundonians on camera before anyone had heard of Google and before You Tube was even conceived. In 2003 Time Capsule experimented with streaming video but it was not until 2009 that full length videos could be streamed online and viewers had the processor speeds to enjoy them.
