Bridgeman Images Now Representing Future Publishing

Bridgeman Images is proud to represent the iconic Future Publishing, which includes the Knowledge brands and TV Times.

TV TIMES

An iconic brand at the heart of the British entertainment industry for over 65 years, TV Times is today proud to add its photography archive to the acclaimed Bridgeman Images archives, offering a unique insight into the changing face of British entertainment from the groundbreaking postwar period through to the new millennium.

First published in 1955 alongside the earliest ITV broadcasts in the UK, TV Times started life as a simple television listings guide for the London region, specifically the Associated-Rediffusion and ATV networks that operated the local ITV franchise at the time. The introduction of an alternative to the BBC’s long standing television monopoly was also part of a wider culture shift taking place in postwar Britain: the Sixties was fast approaching, and with it, a whole new generation of talent from across television, film, music and sport, many of whom would grace the pages of TV Times as it evolved into a nationally syndicated entertainment magazine.

An increased focus on celebrity profiles and interviews brought with it a flurry of photography that continued over the coming decades, from intimate portraits of stars at home to candid moments on set, and often improbable offerings: director Alfred Hitchcock clowning on the set of Coronation Street, or American blues legend Muddy Waters playing guitar licks at a suburban Manchester railway station.

The collection brings together thousands of images from more than half a century of privileged access, and is a fascinating window onto the shifting tastes and trends of British entertainment through the years.

KNOWLEDGE

First launched in the late 2000s and early 2010s, Future’s stable of Knowledge brands–including All About Space, All About History, How It Works, World Of Animals and History Of War–have consistently sought to educate, enlighten and entertain readers with a rich variety of scientific and historical illustrations.

At a time when the creation of original illustration is in decline across much of publishing, Future’s Knowledge titles have made it part of their core identity, a unique visual signature that continues to distinguish the brands among their competitors. Originally inspired by British instructional books of the 1970s, the work combines traditional media such as watercolours with digital paintings and photorealistic 3D renderings that bring to life a broad range of subjects.

Cross-section illustrations allow the viewer to look inside an ancient Aztec temple or glimpse the anatomy of a killer whale; stunning vignettes capture the spectacle of viking seas and Saturn’s rings; and diagrams detail everything from fighter aircraft to particle accelerators.
