In 1963-64 the BBC first experimented with Radiovision programmes and they became an established part of programming from 1964 onwards. They involved 2 elements: a sound programme which was broadcast for schools to record and a set of slides or colour filmstrips for use with a stills projector (providing 30-45 coloured still images per programme).
This Collection is the complete record of BBC School Radio's Radiovision output from 1964 to 1990, consisting of nearly 1,000 programmes on cassette/open reel tape with accompanying teachers' notes and visual materials. It was deposited on permanent loan with the Institute in 1990.
