To try and capture a timeline of all that has happened to shape BITC over the 40 plus years since it originated would take an entire website of its own.
We have therefore compiled a short summary of our extensive history as a way to highlight the significant milestones in our history, partly to establish a single external archive for some of the many reports and publications we have created over time, and to respond to the regular enquiries we receive asking for our story. It is not meant to be a definitive timeline, and we acknowledge and are so grateful to the many, many people, partners and organisations involved in each event or activity mentioned.
There are moments we know we haven’t captured, activities that could have been added, we are aware of that. This is our best endeavour from the archives available to us and seeking a lighter touch timeline conscious that David and Melody’s report is the thorough and detailed story. But we hope that this can be a start of an exchange and that together we can grow this resource. Therefore, if you have a query or have something to add to the history, please send it through to us as we would love to hear from you. We will be updating our timeline periodically, at which point we can add to or amend the information included.
