The TV Room first appeared online in the late-1990s, showcasing the on-screen presentation/branding of the main UK and Irish TV channels.
The original site was run by a small group of volunteers. It included a comprehensive collection of channel idents dating back to the days of black and white TV and 405-line transmission.
Most of our archive was available in stills form only.
On 1st January 2021, we launched the Rewind sub-site, with the intention of making our archive available in video form.
Rewind includes contributions from a number of hobby archivists.
Sit back and enjoy the nostalgia.
This site generally does not feature complete programmes. We do not include material that would intentionally deprive copyright holders of income.
Rewind is presented as an educational resource, documenting the development of broadcast graphic design, channel branding, set design and marketing over the decades.
The TV Room logo and associated branding was produced by Martin Anderson.
