Many books, journals, newspapers, websites and other sources have been used in compiling Chronomedia. Bearing in mind that the material has been gathered over a period of more than 30 years, some sources used to check a single reference may not have been recorded at the time and have been forgotten.
        In response to a number of requests from readers for more details and/or clarification, a fresh start has been made on compiling a list of references. This should allow more transparency in determining sources of information. In future, a reference number will be added to entries, where appropriate, with a link to this page. An attempt will also be made to add such references retrospectively to existing entries.
