Agrégation anglais 2021 tronc commun civilisation, la BBC 1922-1995, post one

Those who are planning on taking the agrégation in 2021 will perhaps have noticed that the new question on "civilisation britannique" is out, and concerns the history of the BBC. The framework document (texte de cadrage) is here:


I will be posting here regularly links and information concerning this question - most frequently links to videos, but also to other useful elements as publications and academic conferences and seminars take up the challenge of exploring the history of this very impressive institution, a history which is multiform and includes the institutional, the political, the economic, the social and the cultural. Here are some initial ideas for reading, and a few videos. this list was put together by myself and a colleague from Toulon.
