  • Visions of Change: TV Documentary of the 50s – 60s

    Television offered the factual filmmaker a host of new opportunities in its formative decades.

  • The Truth about Love

    A very British take on themes of lust, passion and desire, with a good helping of infidelity, unrequited love and even a spot of murder thrown in for good measure.

  • ITV at 60

    In September 1955 the commercial channel ITV was launched, marking a new era for British television.
