ByRichard DownChristopher Perry

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Why was the BBC's opening programme shown twice on different days? Who produced the majority of pre-war BBC programmes? How was 'Doctor Who' created? What is the earliest surviving telerecording? How many years did 'Sunday Night Theatre' make outstanding live plays? What shows were nearly made, but never completed? What character was originally called Tom Devises? This Research Guide gives detailed information on seventy years of BBC drama plays, series and serials. It’s all here: the great and the good; the one-offs and the soap operas; the sci-fi and the melodrama. Each volume is full of facts, fun and information about the origins of the BBC, including details of what survives in the archives. Regional programmes, school dramatisations and BBC test transmissions are included in detailed listings, and a selection of the finest radio output completes these staggering volumes.
