Presentation Archive launched on 3 February 2014. The archive documents the history of television presentation from the United Kingdom and Ireland from the mid 2000’s to the present day. TV Presentation from Asia and the Middle East is showcased in the International section of the site. The aim of the site is to archive TV presentation for educational and historic purposes. The site is run by 2 volunteers and has numerous content contributors. This site is not connected to any broadcaster and is a non profit website run by TV presentation enthusiasts.
Presentation Archive uses WordPress content management software and is hosted on OVH servers. The majority of recordings on the site before July 28th 2015 were recorded with a Toshiba DVD/VHS Recorder from Sky+ HD. Recordings after July 28th 2015 are recorded with the Hauppauge HD PVR 2. Videos are edited in Serif MoviePlus X3 and VideoReDo. Presentation Archive is always expanding, if you wish to contribute recordings of television presentation past or present we would love to hear from you. Our email address is email@example.com

Starting on 5 September 2017 we are ramping up our work to update low and or mix resolution images on 78 content pages across the site. We apologise for the formatting issues with small and multiple sized images on these pages at present. This was due to unforeseen issues when converting the site to be mobile friendly. Current Status 15 of 78 complete.
The majority of menu pages have already been updated with larger thumnail sections and more information about each era of presentation listed.
New page names and better content page descriptions
You may have noticed we are gradually renaming some of our pages. Example: Sky1: 2011 is now Sky1: 2011 Idents & Presentation. This is to improve our site ranking and improve our search engine optimisation (SEO).
