Television has only recently become an all-digital medium. Programmes used to be made using analogue video or celluloid film.
Here you can see how these technologies worked. They created millions of hours of TV that continue to be watched around the world. This website features:
|Over 130 videos – most in short, medium and long length versions|
|More than 12 hours of footage|
|Interactive stories about television history|
|Profiles of television veterans|
Our videos recreate how TV used to be made, using historic technologies operated by the professionals who once used them every day.
These videos are the product of the ADAPT research project, funded by the European Research Council.
