BBC at 100

Celebrate 100 years of the BBC with a new display that explores how the BBC has used broadcast technologies to deliver its mission to inform, educate and entertain its audiences.  

BBC at 100 showcases objects from across the BBC’s long history, including radio, television and digital programming. Travel back in time with the 1944 BBC ‘Midget’ portable disc recorder, used by war correspondents on the Western Front. Enter the world of Doctor Who and meet an original 1980s Cyberman. From the Computer Literacy Project and BBC Microcomputer to BBC Bitesize, see how the BBC has spent the last century shaping and supporting education.  


This display is part of the Science Museum Group’s Broadcast 100 activities, which mark the 100th anniversary of the BBC and the 40th anniversary of Channel 4.
