BBC2: Origins; Influence; Audiences:
BBC2: Origins; Influence; Audiences:

Join us for a two-day conference of lively discussion about the past and future of BBC2, commemorating its 50th anniversary. On 20 April 1964, the BBC launched its second television channel: BBC2. Fifty years on, this conference engages with the example of BBC2 to consider the history of how, as well as what, we access through television.

In the 1960s questions were raised about the increasingly dominant role of television in the home and the part the Pilkington Committee played in preserving middle- and upper-class values in the medium. It was also the first channel in the UK to offer UHF, then colour, television, changing the way that television was produced, broadcast and consumed. Today the way television is accessed is changing rapidly, not only through satellite and cable, but as a result of the convergence of television and internet technologies.

This conference includes an evening reception in the museum’s Energy Hall. For further details of the conference and its programme, please see the conference website.
