Missing Believed Wiped Special: 30 Years of Kaleidoscope
David Hamilton takes you back through 30 years of rare programmes and carefully selected compilations of classic moments once thought lost.
Over more than two decades, our Missing Believed Wiped screenings have often showcased rediscovered material returned to the archives via Kaleidoscope, the Classic TV Organisation. To celebrate their 30th birthday, we hand the reins over to them. Started in 1988 by a group of college students, Kaleidoscope now stores one of the UK’s largest private archives of British TV, has a flourishing publishing company, operates TV Brain (the TV equivalent of IMDB), makes TV programmes and has recently launched a DVD range. All of its staff work for free, supported by a network of 3000 volunteers who find, restore and catalogue our nation’s TV history. Today, your host David Hamilton will take you back through 30 years of rare programmes, alongside carefully selected compilations of classic moments once thought lost.
