As we mark 125 years of the BIR in 2022, join BIR Honorary Historian Dr Adrian Thomas to explore the early days of our society, and how it has developed to match the needs of a changing world. Be transported back to 1897 when seeing inside the body was becoming a possibility for the very first time and the potential of the new “photography” was slowly being recognised as a diagnostic tool.

Imagine the excitement and anticipation of what the future could hold for the medical profession as these brave pioneers took part in their first meeting. Find out about the characters and personalities involved and discover how the BIR influenced the development of this brand new specialty, through its journal and Annual Congress.

Learn how scientists and doctors worked together, involved radiographers and physiotherapists and how those early values of multi-disciplinary working still continue today.
