'Direct Television From Alexandra Palace' website link
by Arthur Dungate
The purpose of this website is to provide information, much of which may be unavailable elsewhere, on my personal experiences of the early days of BBC Television when it was broadcast from Alexandra Palace on the heights of North London. The period covered is post-war from 1952 to 1963. In addition there are some experiences of Lime Grove and Riverside Studios in the mid-1950s.
