As St Catherine's was being built, in July 1962, the Telstar satellite was making history as the first to relay television pictures through space. A year later, Mary Whitehouse would launch her 'Clean Up TV' campaign.

The next five decades would see immeasurable changes, as technology and taste evolved into new programmes. Our panel take a fresh and challenging look at the vast upheavals that have taken place in Britain, and on its stage and screen, in the course of fifty turbulent years. Part of series celebrating 50 years of St Catherine's College.
