This page was first published in September 2013.

I would like to thank the following people: Ralph Montagu, Head of Heritage at The Radio Times, a host of private collectors including Roger Bickerton, Penny Fabb, and Ken Clark, and the staff at the BBC Written Archive Centre at Caversham.

I am also indebted to the Shiers Trust who provided a grant to complete the research and digitisation of the Pre-War Television Supplements and schedules and to create this website.

A large part of the work would not have been possible withouth the help of Lynda Kelly of who not only supplied some of the Supplements, but has been very supportive of all the work I have undertaken. publish a number of books related to the Radio Times:


Concise History of British Television 1930-2000

The Radio Times Story

Cover Catalogue: All The Christmas Numbers

Cover Catalogue: 80th Anniversary Selection
