“Kaleidoscope is a key organisation in the search for lost television programmes, the provision of information about television of the past and the forging of links amongst television companies, academics and TV enthusiasts.”

“Years ago, often for financial reasons, television companies wiped or recorded over iconic shows that were lost forever. Or so it seemed… Some individuals video recorded their favourite programmes. In many cases the quality was as good as the original. Lots of these tapes have been donated to Kaleidoscope making it the definitive library of rare and ‘lost’ TV shows. Now, of course, the TV companies want them back to show them again. Kaleidoscope events are a ‘must’ for people in the television industry and TV buffs.”

"Kaleidoscope's in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm for tracing long lost TV programmes is simply incredible. Their definitive library of rare and missing shows is simply essential for those in the archive television industry, like myself. Their superb, money raising efforts for The Royal National Lifeboat, and the way they have helped raise awareness of the work undertaken by the Institution is highly commendable too. Well done Chris and his team... Long may their splendid work continue."
