75 Years of BBC Television

Radio Times - Television 50th
Anniversary Cover 1.11.86
This blog normally concerns itself with radio matters but tomorrow marks the 75th anniversary of BBC television.

Unlike the 50th anniversary the BBC, usually never ones to miss marking significant milestones in their history, have gone for a very low-key affair – just a few pages in this week’s Radio Times and an evening of repeats on BBC4.  

If you want to see what BBC TV, and ITV and Channel 4, looked like back in 1988 then head over to my other blog. I’m recalling the day when the British Film Institute and all the major broadcasters ran the One Day in the Life of Television project.
