NEW EXHIBITION FOR 2022 CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF BROADCASTING – Museum Of Communications (MOC)

After the two-year enforced closure of the Burntisland based MOC museum, we are  planning to open a new free public exhibition from May.  The exhibition will mark an important anniversary in the history of radio and TV broadcasting.

In 2022, British broadcasting has entered its centenary year, marking both 100 years since the first experimental scheduled broadcasts were made in the UK and the start of the BBC – the world’s oldest national broadcaster. It will also register our  presence back in the community and  town etc.

The Museum’s 2022 exhibition will be in  131 on the High Street of Burntisland (KY3 9AA). The exhibition will feature a 100 year Broadcasting timeline running from 1922 to 2022 highlighting famous radio and TV programmes and events illustrated by items from our collection- crystal set radios, valve wirelesses to TV cameras, recalling the great moments in broadcasting history, events of the day and other memorabilia. Hopefully we can set up a broadcast demonstration for young people to enjoy and illustrate some of the technical aspects of the history of broadcasting. We also want to show how broadcasting has evolved into today’s world of on-line streaming, smart-phones and HDTV.  There will be an additional exhibit covering Royal Broadcasting in this Queens Platinum Jubilee year.

Everyone will be welcome to come in to see the exhibition – normally on Wednesdays and Saturdays over May to September. There will be no charge for entrance to the exhibition. The museum is a registered charity and run only by  volunteers. WoSARS Members see POST#1978 . for further information.
