In the first years of BBC2 there were a number of programmes that presented experimental work (but not necessarily exeperimetal TV/film) I have a memory (I think) of Charlotte Moorman performing and also the early improv group Iskra1903.... Does anyone knows what these programmes were and if any recordings exist?

If you're interested in British experimental works for TV (and nobody else has mentioned this already...), you should check out Videospace, made by John "Hoppy" Hopkins in 1970 with the assistance of the BBC.

Hoppy is better known as a counterculture organiser of the 60s, but was also photographer and early taker up of the creative possibilities of video. Videospace was apparently inspired by experiments that had been going on at KQED TV station in San Francisco. The beeb let a bunch of freaks take control of the studio and control room to see what would happen...

It was screened in a retrospective at the Lux in London in 2005. They might have access to a Beta SP intermediate (The original recording is on 2" Quad, I think). Otherwise Hoppy can be contacted via his studio Fantasy Factory.

Good luck with it.
