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!

“…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.”

“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.”

“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.”
