Preserving the Sound Archive

Preserving the Sound Archive

An interview with Julia Weaver, BBC Sound Archivist

Julia Weaver, who preserves sound recordings for the BBC, tells us about everything from wax cylinders to digital files.


An Expanding Archive

It's great to work at the BBC. You feel like you're a part of a huge team of people working towards the same goal. In the sound archive it's nice to think that the material that's being transmitted at the moment, the programmes that are out there, are becoming a part of the archive. That is a part of the BBC's future. Programmes, whether they're news, documentaries, Radio 1 sessions, are all valuable assets that we need to look after for the future.
