100 Voices that made the BBC: Entertaining the Nation

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site


Inform, educate, and entertain: these three principles have underpinned public service broadcasting in the UK for almost 100 years. Drawing on newly-released interviews from the BBC Oral History Collection, we explore the varied landscape of broadcast entertainment. From Saturday night viewing which drew the nation together, and natural history programmes that educate and entertain at the same time, to political satire, sitcoms, drama and music. Enjoy – and be entertained!
