A Classic British Icon – the Red Telephone Box

Our Latest Video is on YouTube

As part of our mini-series on classic public communication on the street, our latest video looks at the red telephone box, an icon of British design recognised across the world.

We focus on the ‘K2’, which is recreated in the video using Blender software (that thumbnail image of a telephone in Canary Wharf isn’t real, by the way).  Our Digital Collections Officer made the video and is rather proud of how the computer-generated ‘K2’ turned out.

The next video in the series may focus on the ‘KX’ box – the boxy glass BT telephone box introduced in the 1980s.  Keep an eye on our YouTube channel!
