The BBC maintains one of the largest archives of any broadcaster in the world, managing millions of hours of TV, Radio and Online content, encompassing over 90 years of broadcasting. The archive is constantly growing and the BBC is dedicated to exploring the ways it can bring the archive back out of the vaults and on to our screens.
This unmissable collection of highlights looks back at television arts documentary making at the BBC, throughout its history. With a number of titles to choose from, specially selected from landmark BBC series like Monitor, Arena, Omnibus and the Culture Show, this is a unique opportunity to relive key moments, revisit forgotten places and get face to face with some of the most popular people and practitioners in the arts.
The festival runs from Fri 11 to Sun 13 April. For full listings on the other dates please see the links on the left.
