Welcome to my listing of 16 inch from my collection. To view a different section (for example the BBC Transcription discs if there are any for this), select the new section in the links above this message.

To view details of a particular release, simply click on the picture or the text which follows underneath in the display below. By viewing a release page, you will find a lot more information about that particular release which includes basic details of it like the artist and year of release, any track details for the release (if applicable), lists of other similar releases as well as any other pictures I have taken. If there are linked videos, then you will be able to see the them in a form of a youtube embedded object into the webpage!

For BBC releases, all releases are listed whether they are in my collection or not. You can check if I actually have it by selecting the link.

Please note that if you are aware of a BBC release not listed on these pages, then I would be very interested in hearing from you. Would you mind please contacting me using the Contact me page? If you also have an item to sell, then you can use that same page to try to sell the item to me. I should add that the number of entries I don't have from the publicly available catalagues are now quite small. To make this easier for you, I have created Items I need page listing them all!'

BBC Transcription Services (before BBC Transcription Service (no "s"), later BBC Transcription and today BBC Radio International) discs were only made available to overseas radio stations for broadcast purposes and were not made available for sale to the general public. However, in the early 90s many international BBC libraries sold their stocks to the public. Limitation: "Typically BBC Transcription Services pressed 100 copies of each disc only with instructions to the overseas radio network to destroy the disc at the end of the licence period."

Note that the genre of shows available via this label is as wide as the main BBC labels available to view here.

Also, records have been issued home and abroad for many years (the oldest I have comes from the 1950's but they have been issued for much longer!) Unlike most catalogues of records, each side of the BBC Transcription disc has it's own catalogue number - side two normally is one number higher than side one!
