TV Heaven

TV Heaven was a series of 13 theme nights shown on Channel 4 in early 1992, celebrating the best of archive British television. Twelve of the evenings each focused on programmes from a particular year from the 1960s or 1970s, with one evening focussing on programmes from the 1950s. Each evening featured three, four or five complete programmes, most of which were originally shown on ITV and which were repeated with their idents intact. Several short features bookended the programmes; Opening Shots was a compilation of title sequences from the year concerned, A Choice of Viewing was a montage of clips from other programmes, and Where Were They Then? showcased a clip of a subsequently famous person early in their career. A selection of advertisements were shown; these would have been screened in the year in focus, but some did not necessarily originate from the years to which they were attributed, although most did. The programmes and clips were linked by Frank Muir and the links between programmes
