Also, don't know if this is a British thing, but the physical slate I have has a space labelled 'slate'. I've never been entirely sure what the correct usage of this is, but I tend to use it as an incremental count on the number of shots we've slated throughout the day.
Nick, do you have a pic of this slate?
Not to hand, though I probably have it on a screencap somewhere. I'll snap a pic when I get a second.
My guess would be that the "Slate" thing was to track which scene it is in filming sequence vs. what scene it is in the script. The first scene we shot in Polaris was (I think) 10B, but if you marked the Slates in sequence that would be Slate 1, Scene 10B.
