Midlands News: 17.02.1958: Second birthday of ATV

As we’re celebrating our tenth birthday this week it seems only right that we look back at ATV’s birthday, the ITV regional collection forming a part of MACE’s collection. 


In today’s clip we see the second birthday of ATV at the Television Theatre in Aston. There are various people present, include Norman Collins, one of the major figures behind the establishment of ITV.

It seems apt that ATV’s birthday, on the 17th February, is only 3 days after ours!

Who is the lady cutting the cake? Can you tell us who some of the other party goers are?
