In November 1936 the BBC launched the world's first television service. Since then TV has become part of our Lives and our memories.
This anthology was first shown earlier this year to launch BBC2's Festival of Television. Using over 200 moments from programmes, it attempts to give an impression of the people and events, the entertainment, the excitement and the sadness that make up television's first 40 years.
