BBC will launch 100 – online exhibitions


The British broadcaster BBC will celebrate its 100th birthday in 2022. At the start of the anniversary year, several online exhibitions began.

On the website “BBC 100” was released on Monday collections of objects, personalities and voices that have shaped the decades since the British Broadcast Corporation was founded in October 1922.

The exhibits include early microphones and props from famous BBC series, such as the master detective’s coat Sherlock Holmes from the series “Sherlock”, and portraits of BBC employees or interviewed personalities. In addition, there are excerpts from radio broadcasts, such as the appeal by the later French President General Charles de Gaulle from his English exile in 1940 to his compatriots to resist the German occupiers.

“The BBC has a wonderful story that belongs to all of us,” said BBC history director Robert Seatter, according to a statement. For the anniversary, the BBC is also working with the Science Museum Group. In addition to a digital exhibition with 1,000 objects, it is also planning physical exhibitions in several of its museums in the UK. (dpa / bey)
