The Box That Changed the World
A festival of some of the greatest moments of British television, examining the impact the medium has had on British society over three-quarters of a century. Hosted by Melvyn Bragg at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in Piccadilly, a wide range of guests included Michael Grade, Dame Joan Bakewell, and an extraordinary array of the talent responsible for delivering great TV of all genres. The programme looked at the impact of TV news, documentary, current affairs, drama, drama-documentary, comedy and arts – asking how TV has affected these genres, and how these art forms have affected TV. Not to be missed.
