About the film archive
Learn about the history behind our documentary film archive from the 1940s.
The BBC works to provide an enriching Schools broadcast that teaches children about other cultures.
'This picture shows how school broadcasting enriches the curriculum and brings into a little village school a breath from the world outside. It gives an idea of the central organisation, showing how closely the designers of the broadcasts are in touch with schools.
There are many classroom scenes and shots of BBC Talks Studios.'
