As part of the Science Museum Group’s Broadcast 100 celebrations, marking the centenary of the BBC and the 40th anniversary of Channel 4 in 2022, the National Science and Media Museum will host Switched On a special temporary exhibition across Galleries 1 and 2, set to open in July.

In Gallery 1, Switched On will take visitors on a journey from the first BBC radio programmes in 1922 to TV and the rise of streaming services. The exhibition will examine the industry through the pioneers linked with broadcasting innovations that have reflected and changed everyday life.

Throughout Gallery 2, Switched On will also explore the future of broadcasting with an exciting interactive exhibition, taking visitors on a journey of what media technologies and broadcasting could look like in the next 100 years.

Broadcast 100 is a series of events and exhibitions taking place across the Science Museum Group throughout 2022. Switched On at the National Science and Media Museum will open to the public from July 2022 – January 2023.
