100 Years of Our BBC Set & Sheet Set

Produced in partnership with the BBC, we are delighted to present this set of twelve stamps commemorating the centenary year of this British institution.

Product Description
  • The stamps are designed to reflect the official branding of the BBC100 campaign and the topics below have been proposed and selected by Robert Seatter, Head of BBC History.

    Each stamp features a unique icon of BBC broadcasting and each stamp border includes an iconic / recognisable quote to the bottom of the artwork. The background of each stamp includes a subtle reference to the topic pictured.

    The Tardis from Doctor Who, the longest running sci-fi series in the world, underpinned by some intergalactic explanation: “Time and Relative Dimensions in Space.”

    The Glitterball trophy from the light entertainment series Strictly Come Dancing, together with Bruce Forsyth’s immortal catchphrase: “Keep Dancing!”

    The Blue Peter badge from the longest-running children’s show in the world, with its famous instruction: “Here’s one I made earlier.”

    The BBC News globe, symbol of international communication, with its on air announcement: “Here is the News from the BBC.”

    The bust of Queen Victoria from the Queen Vic pub in Albert Square, as featured in the nation’s favourite soap, EastEnders, accompanied by its cliffhanger theme tune: “Doof-Doof-Doof-Doof-Doof-Doof-Doof-Doof-Doof!”

    A musical symbol of the BBC Proms, the largest classical music festival in the world, with its open-hearted message: “Welcome to the BBC Proms from the Royal Albert Hall.”
