I am sorry if I am going over old ground. Has anyone visited www.Americanradiohistory.com. They have a number of IBA Yearbooks from the 1970s and 1980s to download. Also BBC year books from the 1940s through to the 1990s also free to download. They also have issues of NME. Disc. And a number of older pop magazines also free to download.

ah,the IBA yearbooks otherwise known in the late 70s & early 80s as 'television and radio'. they were one of my favourite christmas presents growing up as a kid back in the 1980s.i remembered getting my first book the 1981 edition 38 years ago today back in 1980 as a six-year old! i preferred that to the toys i had & got every edition right up until the last one back in 1988.before i visit the site do they have every page from every IBA yearbook or do they have the ITA ones from 1963 to 1972? i first read the ITA ones in the reference section of the aberdeen central library back in 1990 when i asked for any annual reports of the ITA and IBA from the 60s and 70s.i requested for them everytime i go to the library as it was ended up at the basement and was part of the library's catalogue.all they had in the 80s & 90s was 1966,67,68,71,72(ITA)73,74,75,77,78,79,80,81,82,83,84,85,86,87& 88)with the exception of 22.214.171.124.70 & 75.happy memories
Hi Christian. The IBA Yearbooks only start from 1977 I'm afraid. But on the plus side all the books that are available are complete and it's nice to be able to read them on a tablet. The books are available in PDF. Not as nice as owning them though but they are not easy to get hold of. If anyone is interested in downloading them they are under the letter U in the left hand index section.

I found the website & I looked at some of the books.i realised some pages of the 1978 edition were missing including the front cover with the muppets all over the page.does this mean it was excluded from the site as the rights to ‘the muppet show’ now belongs to Disney?the article on the making of ‘the muppets’ was included on the book while looking at it.had a feeling if this wasn’t going to be added on any of the books due to copyright.if someone at Disney or the Jim Henson organisation see these books when they go to www.American radio history.com how would they feel? Do you know if there’s a website or anyone outhere have pdfs of the following ITA/ITV yearbooks 64,65,66,67,68,70,71,72,73,74,75 &76?
