“I have worked with Chris Perry and Kaleidoscope over the last few years on a number of television archive projects. Thanks to the work that Chris and team do in recovering missing and lost programmes and also to their restoration and protection of these incredible discoveries, the contribution that Kaleidoscope have made to these projects is immense and I look forward to continuing working with them all in the future.”

“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.”

“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.”
