Radio Times pre-war television supplements

Official BBC Television Services started in 1936 and the Radio Times was keen to feature and promote the service from the beginning. There was a special edition of the magazine, the Television Number, complete with a highly collectable cover designed by Eric Fraser, and in a fraction of the London area editions, a free Television Supplement was included.

Complete sets of these are quite rare, especially in good condition, so a project was devised to source and digitise all 28 pre-war Television Supplements, the Television launch edition, and articles and schedule listings from the Radio Times itself until the service closed down at the outbreak of World War II.
