“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
