Museum of London brings together the most iconic covers from the world’s longest running television and radio listings magazine.

Over its 90 year run the Radio Times has covered every historic moment in British broadcasting, from the inaugral BBC radio transmission to the birth of colour TV and explosion of digital channels in the 21st century.

First published in London on 28 September 1923, the magazine has showcased Britain's finest broadcasters, writers, illustrators and photographers, including the likes of JB Priestley, Eric Fraser, Edward Ardizzone and Sir Peter Blake.

As well as original Radio Times photography and artwork, the exhibition features landmark broadcasts, archive clips and broadcast artefacts.

There is also a chance to see the 1941 Luftwaffe Stadtplan von London map which shows that Radio Times' Waterlows printing plant in Park Royal was one of the Nazi's air-raid targets.
