In the early days of television designers were experimenting in ways that are difficult to comprehend today.

In this Myth Makers, Nicholas Briggs chats to Barry Newbery about the challenges this brought and the change to colour pictures in the late 1960’s.

Off and on, Barry worked on Doctor Who for over 20 years, from the very first story right through to The Awakening in 1984. He has a unique view of the programme’s history.
