John Wyver writes: Remarkably, Illuminations was incorporated forty years ago today, 15 June 1982. Which makes this our Ruby anniversary. Five months before Channel 4 went on air, co-founder Geoff Dunlop and I bought the defunct Chromeland (which as I recall was a double-glazing concern) off the shelf and changed its Mem and Arts to allow us to operate as an independent media producer. We have survived, just, across four decades, making at least one broadcast television project each year, and I am pretty certain that makes us the oldest, continuously active independent producer in the mediasphere. To celebrate we are going to offer further anniversary posts here and elsewhere ion social media over the next few days.
