BBC4 produces documentary on Open University

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The Open University is celebrating forty years this year and to celebrate this milestone BBC4 will be producing a new documentary charting the growth of the largest university in the UK.

How the university would have thrived in these days of the internet and satellite TV is easy to see, but when it started it used the early hours of BBC2, books, audio and video tapes, to help its students to study.

It is little known to viewers that many of the BBC’s top documentaries such as Life in Cold Blood, Coast and Child of Our Time were actually part funded by the Open University.

The one hour programme, initially named “Happy Birthday to OU” will be produced by the BBC in Birmingham and will be available for satellite and digital viewers to see on BBC4.
