“Kaleidoscope is a key organisation in the search for lost television programmes, the provision of information about television of the past and the forging of links amongst television companies, academics and TV enthusiasts.”

“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.”

“Chris Perry's "Kaleidoscope" organisation enjoys a unique position as the holder of "media" that larger companies have lost or deserted. There is no doubt that Kaleidoscope has saved a remarkable number of television programmes and other material and artefacts, that would have been lost for future generations without the care and enthusiasm of Chris and his team.

In addition Chris has overseen the publication of many volumes about radio and television and the history of this "new media". Kaleidoscope has given a voice to many people who worked on the setting up and operating of early television; people whose voice is very often not heard but who, as practitioners, have an inside knowledge that has been the foundation that has made Britain one of the leading exponents of the art of television.

Kaleidoscope has also spread the word about Archive and the history of the media with some remarkably popular events which have added to the general enthusiasm for archive and more importantly made archive available to a wide audience.

TV Brain is the latest innovation that will provide insight and enthusiasm. All power and good luck!”
