“ITV and Kaleidoscope have worked together for many years in sharing knowledge and information about ITV’s rich broadcasting history and ITV have donated archive materials to Kaleidoscope to help assist with their endeavours in preserving and exploring past British television programming. The in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm that Kaleidoscope possess, is a valuable resource not only to the broadcasting and production communities but also to anyone interested in this important area of our culture.”

“Kaleidoscope has made – and continues to make – a huge contribution to the investigation, preservation and appreciation of television and its culture.”
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution

“Kaleidoscope have been a loyal and active supporter of the RNLI since 1994. Over the past 20 years, their members have not only raised over £20,000 for the lifeboat service and its volunteer crews, but they have helped to raise awareness of the work undertaken by the Institution to a wide audience both at events and online. More recently, they have worked with the RNLI’s Films and Images and Archive departments supplying footage and tracing material previously believed wiped. None of this would have been possible without them.

Whilst Kaleidoscope are based in land-locked West Midlands, the “shouts” on the coast could not take place without their help and support – we are so grateful to them for their continued support as are those whose lives have been saved thanks to them.”
