“Kaleidoscope are the Keepers of the Flame as far as television is concerned. Their tireless search for gold from TV's past, their all-day screenings of that precious material when they've found it, their publications recording facts and figures, reminiscences and histories of the birth and growth of this extraordinary medium make them an endless source of entertainment and interest. Long may they delight the amateur historian, the happy viewer and the blissful anorak in all of us.”

“Kaleidoscope saves classic British television shows which would have been lost to the nation forever. Their volunteers do it with love, professionalism and enthusiasm, at the same time managing to raise money for The Royal National Lifeboat charity too. Thanks, Kaleidoscope!”

“When I write articles about the rich heritage of British television I always keep the Kaleidoscope guides by my side. Painstakingly researched it gives me cast lists, air dates, alternative titles and even the archive format & status on all of British television history. Kaleidoscope is such a stickler for detail that they provide the best research tools around for this genre.”
