Abstract

The aim of this article is to reflect on the opening of the BBC television service in 1936 and the opening of the BBC2 service in 1964. I explore the background of the two services and focus on the opening ceremonies before drawing together points of comparison or contrast at the end. The article draws on original archive material from the BBC Written Archives in Caversham and the British Postal Museum and Archive in London.
