We’ve been asking staff to recall their fondest memories of the museum. Audience Development and Volunteer Coordinator Mandy Tennant reminds us why this is such a great place to work.
Iain Logie Baird is certain that the Model B Televisor in our collection was tuned in to the very first television broadcast. That’s a lot of history in one object.
Dick Vaughan arrived in 1983 to organise the installation of the first permanent IMAX cinema in Europe. 30 years later he’s still here, and still fascinated by the technology.
The Hogg daguerreotype is one of the most significant objects in our collection. Taken in 1843, it is the earliest known photograph of a photographer at work.
Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation put television on the map. Iain Baird looks at some of the objects in our archive that document that momentous day in TV history.

IMAX Manager Dick Vaughan reflects on the history of Cinerama at the museum.
