Finding important questions is at the centre of doing history, rather than memorizing dates. But history is rooted in time, so you do need to know a number of dates. I recommend drawing up a timeline of the BBC, to keep the main developments in mind. Here are five BBC reports on five significant dates during the post-war boom
BBC report on the first BBC TV broadcast from continental Europe , in 1950
First daily television news programme, in 1954
BBC report on the end of the BBC television monopoly in 1955.
BBC report on a very famous April Fool joke in 1957.
BBC report on the opening of a new television centre in 1960. http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/june/29/newsid_4535000/4535913.stm
