Default BBC schools’ booklet.


Seeing the “Oh for a Time Machine” thread reminded me of a Time and Tune BBC schools’ booklet I found in a New Forest charity store in the last week.

I remember these from my Junior school days in the 60’s being used to accompany schools broadcasts. I’m not sure, but I may remember this actual one as I’d have been seven at the time and we used to listen to schools’ radio.

There was the Clarke and Smith radio in the office and a portable (well kind of) speaker with a jack to jack lead connecting to a socket in the classroom – from memory this speaker was made by Wharfedale? Being a nerdy radio kid, this kit fascinated me no end.

This dates back to the summer term of 1967 and Looking at the back it mentions the Home Service, I figure this was the last to be issued ahead of the change to Radio 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the September of 1967 marking the end of an era in broadcasting.
