Dec 25 2011: Christmas Greetings from Television Wales and West (Cardiff and Bristol, c.1965)

Well, it’s a short but very sweet one for today: a very sincere Christmas Greetings card from a period I assume is sometime in the mid-1960s, as sent by TWW at Pontcanna Studios, Cardiff, and Television Centre, Bristol. TWW stood for Television Wales and West and it held the franchise for Independent Television in the region from 1958 until 1967, when it lost out to HTV. Lovely design on the card, though, and the TV studios pictured inside it appear remarkably modest by the present day media’s standards of self-aggrandisement. Wherever the card comes from, however, and whatever we might learn from looking at it, its basic message – Greetings! – remains entirely current. I hope anyone reading this has a wonderful day. Happy Christmas.
