Doctor Who Celebrated As Part Of The Radio Times At 90 Exhibition

The Museum Of London will be celebrating 90 years of Radio Times later this year with a free exhibition running from 2nd August till the 3rd November, that will also acknowledge the importance of Doctor Who in British culture. The exhibition charts the history of the British weekly TV and radio listings publication and its close association with the history of broadcasting in Britain and will feature some of the most iconic covers since the first publication of Radio Times by the BBC in London on 28th September 1923.

The exhibition makes a special feature of Doctor Who covers in celebration of the show's 50th Anniversary. The show has had a long association with the magazine, first appearing on the front cover in 1964. The Doctor Who section of the exhibition will also feature photos from the Radio Times archive and a genuine life size Dalek against a backdrop of Westminster Bridge to recreate the 2005 "Vote Dalek" cover, declared the most iconic of all time in the Periodical Publishers Association's Great Cover Debate.

Ben Preston, Radio Times Editor, said, “To flick through the covers of Radio Times over the past 90 years is to watch a popular history of Britain unfold: Royal weddings; Coronations; the outbreak of war and peace; moon landings and even a victorious World Cup, household names created and stars born - all have graced the cover of Radio Times."
