"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."

“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.”

“When I launched the Treasure Hunt for missing programmes from the BBC Archive nearly 15 years ago it was encouraging to know that Kaleidoscope were in the background helping and more importantly still there doing great work tracing missing TV.”
