BBC TV is 80 years young!

80 years ago this month, in November 1936,  the BBC started its television service from Alexandra Palace in North London. Following initial transmissions of interview and magazine programmes, it started to experiment with other types of show and tried out drama formats along with entertainment and factually-based productions.

This fascinating presentation, from the very start of TV as we know it, will feature clips from some of these programmes of yesteryear when two rival systems were being assessed.  We will have a glimpse into the programmes available at that time and the production techniques the BBC was using between the 1930's and the outbreak of WW2 including the very first outside broadcast: the coronation of King George VI.
