This collection is the BBC's own collection of pamphlets produced to accompany schools radio broadcasts from September 1926 till the late 1970s; the volumes from Summer 1958 and onwards include pamphlets for television broadcasts as well.
During the academic year 1946-47 the series divided into 'Pamphlets' and 'Leaflets', within the same numbered sequence, and in 1973 another sequence, called 'Notes', was added, also within the original numbered sequence.
The Collection was deposited on permanent loan with the Institute in 1990.
