The BBTV Tunnels Yahoo Mailing List was started on Yahoo in 2001, but its roots date back much earlier
In late 1995 or early 1996 a small group of fans led by Aurea and Lynn set up a majordomo mailing list called BBCC (Beauty and the Beast Classic Connection). The name was later changed to BBTV in early 1997 because one of the moderator was working on creating an alt.beautybeast-tv group on the usenet. The mailing list was moved over to yahoo after a major server crash.
The mailing list advertised itself as a "Classic" list for fans of the first two seasons of Beauty and the Beast.
As of November 2013 it had 743 members. In November 2015, it had 1055 members.
In 2001 the mailing list hosted the International Beauty and the Beast Convention in New York City.
This list is a public list.From the intro page:
This list is for fans of the 1980s CBS television series "Beauty and the Beast." It is a Classic fandom list, which means discussion focuses on Seasons 1 and 2 only. Catherine is alive and well here!
