NEW PODCAST EPISODE!!
From the Archive Episode 10: Tales of Television Centre & ITV Archives

BBC Television Centre has a place in many of hearts that adore British television. When news came about its closure, it upset many that the BBC would leave such an iconic location. A wonderful documentary was produced before it closed. Directed by Richard Marson, Tales of Television Centre, brought together a wide spectrum of people who worked most of their careers there to bring us some of the warmest memories of our “concrete donut”. We talk with Richard about the making of this documentary and what it was like making it, creating the tone of the piece and an insight on what the BBC wanted to name it just prior to transmission! This is the first of a few conversations with will have with Richard and this is a fun one to listen to about Television Centre!

We also talk to Andrew Gavaghan who is the Archive Manager to the ITV archives. Conducted on location at the ITV Archive in Leeds in December of 2017, Andrew gives is an insight into the workings of the archives. It’s a great conversation!

“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.”

“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.”
