“Kaleidoscope are the Keepers of the Flame as far as television is concerned. Their tireless search for gold from TV's past, their all-day screenings of that precious material when they've found it, their publications recording facts and figures, reminiscences and histories of the birth and growth of this extraordinary medium make them an endless source of entertainment and interest. Long may they delight the amateur historian, the happy viewer and the blissful anorak in all of us.”

“…a very enterprising group of people in the midlands called Kaleidoscope who specialise in looking at old programmes, getting copies that everyone thinks have long disappeared and they find them and restore them, and they do credits lists for people like me.”

“Having been made aware of Kaleidoscope's existence some years ago by a contact at the BFI, I took advantage of their archive facility, with great help from the company's work-force. Subsequently I learned of the myriad events they organise, the work they do in sourcing archive material and finally, during 2016, discovered they are publishers too; had the pleasure of attending one of their book launches. An all-round, tip-top group of people, preserving early television material, keeping the memories alive.”
