When I was 'the lad' in the VT department the stuff we used when physically cut-editing 2-inch Quadruplex video tape was called Edivue, but I can't find any references or sources of that online. Something that looks very similar, though, is called Kyread:

Thankfully, electronic editing came in almost immediately after I started with the BBC, and Quads were quickly replaced by the 1-inch C-format, along with Hi-band U-matic, then Betacam and Beta-SP. My associations with the VT department ended around that time so I missed the joys of all the different digital video formats...

My small bottle of "developer" kindly supplied to me by an elderly gent in the UK many years ago, is almost empty so I need to replace it. Some research I did a while ago suggests it's not too hard to make one's own brew, the magnetic ingredient being Carbonyl Iron.
