CRCC doctoral researcher contributes to national exhibition on 100 years of broadcasting
From 23 July until 2022 until 31 January 2023, the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford is hosting “Switched on: 100 years of broadcast innovation“. This is the largest exhibition in a series of events organized throughout 2022 by Science Museum Group across Manchester, London and Bradford in collaboration with the BBC to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of broadcasting.
One of Loughborough University’s doctoral students in Communication and Media, Natasha Kitcher, has contributed to the exhibition during a placement and as a freelance curator. Natasha’s doctoral research provides a comparative approach to the history of the Electrophone.
The exhibition looks at different broadcasters, the move from television to streaming, and celebrates some of the key pioneers involved in the development of the medium. Natasha Kitcher has also authored various digital posts around the exhibition, including on Tuning into Childhood, Television and Radio in the Second World War and International Women’s Day.
The exhibition opened in July 2022 and will remain open until January 2023. Tickets are available to book online via the Science Media Museum website.
