The Museum of Broadcasting will begin a 10-week retrospective Jan. 24 to commemorate the 15th anniversary of public TV's "Masterpiece Theatre."

The exhibition will include segments of 36 of the 80 miniseries broadcast since "Masterpiece Theatre" was introduced Jan. 10, 1971, with "The First Churchills."

A number of stars from past presentations, including Susan Hampshire who appeared in three ("The First Churchills," "Vanity Fair" and "Barchester Chronicles") and Jean Marsh and Simon Williams from the long-running "Upstairs, Downstairs," will attend a birthday gala on Jan. 20.

The museum exhibition will include several seminars, including one featuring Alistair Cooke, the series' host.
