BBC TV backgrounds old and new for PowerPoint and backgrounds

The BBC has released some high-quality images from their famous TV shows to be used as virtual backgrounds or in PowerPoint slides.  Pick from Doctor Who (old or new), Fawlty Towers, Yes Minster, Match of the Day, Eastenders and more.

Called ‘The Joy of Sets’ it’s a collection of archived images from the extensive back catalog of BBC TV gems.

To get the images, it’s the usual method.  Click through until the image appears on the full browser window.  Wait until the full image has appeared (it might take a few seconds). Right-click and choose ‘Save Image As …’ or equivalent in your browser.  Save and name the photo to whatever folder you like.

Alternatively, right-click and choose ‘Copy image’ if available in the browser then paste into PowerPoint, Word or wherever you like.
