At our museum we have displayed a QR code that visitors can scan with the iPads. The QR code will bring them to the blog so that they can look at the work we have already posted here about the 1960s and 70s but we thought it would be fun to also show a few clips of TV programs from this time.

Here is a clip from Blue Peter in the 1960s starring the Daleks from Dr. Who. You can see that the program was in black and white and the quality is not very good. Colour TV was not invented until 1967 and then it was BBC 2 which first showed programs in colour while the other two channels were still black  and white!

At the museum you will see that we have a fabulous collection of toys which are vehicles from the popular shows of the 1960s and 70s. Toys such as the vehicles from Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Joe 90, all programs written by Gerry Anderson and made using puppets. These programs are still popular today. Here is the beginning of an episode of Thunderbirds from 1967, one of the first children’s programs in colour.

In 1969 Neil Armstrong was the 1st man to walk on the moon and in this video you hear him say the famous words, “One small step for (a) man and one giant step for mankind.” Today we have more computer power in our mobile phone than they had in the whole space ship!
