Using Social Media to tell the Story of the BBC

Frankie Howerd in Up Pompeii!Regular readers will know that we frequently post blogs from Robert Seatter, head of the BBC History site, where his team not only archives fascinating material detailing the corporation's 80-plus years as the world's biggest broadcaster, but also collects your memories of those remarkable moments.

In the last month the team has chronicled the anniversaries of the ribald historical sitcom, Up Pompeii! (starring the late great Frankie Howerd, pictured), the launch of classic radio comedy, Round the Horne, as well as the first televised Grand National. And next week Robert will be returning with an article on the grandfather of all antiques shows on the TV: Going for a Song.

In the meantime, it's worth pointing out that the site's regular Great Moments and Object of the Week slots will now be appearing on our Twitter and Facebook feeds. This week's Object is Lord Reith's Broadcasting House cigar box!
