Get involved with the Domeday Reloaded Experience Roadshow

Neil Copeman | 09:28 UK time, Wednesday, 18 May 2011

Travel back to the 1980s with the Domesday Reloaded Experience roadshow, touring the country this week.

The roadshow features a 1980s retro bedroom area complete with games, toys and informative BBC Domesday reloaded film. There's also a chance to present an 80s-style edition of Top of the Pops in our interactive greenscreen area.

You can also explore the website with one of the team and ask questions about Domesday Reloaded.

We've already stopped off at Coventry and Warrington but the roadshow will also be calling at:

Wednesday 18th May = St Georges, Preston

Thursday 19th May = Arndale, Manchester

Friday 20th May = The Potteries, Stoke-on-Trent

If you visit the roadshow do let us know what you think.

    History repeats itself! When the 1986 project launched I took a system to Hanley (in Stoke-on-Trent) and we set it up in the centre of town and for an hour or so I chatted live on Radio Stoke ... where I used to work ... with passers-by and showed them the blocks for places they knew. No green-screen Top of the Pops though ... and sadly I lost the off-air recording.

    Have fun on Friday.

    There is a community web site due to be disposed of by the BBC. It has interesting articles on many things. This one may be of interest to people reading here : - http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/approved_entry/A53660595
    Of course this begs the question ' what will happen to do all the data being collected here in 10 years time when the BBC shoots off on another venture '?

    @Ancient Brit, the BBC have already outlined the plan to stop taking submissions in November and then have the data hosted by the National Archives.

    @Going_Digital - I assume that your comment concerns submissions and data put together by contributers to this site.
    My concern is for the future of the h2g2 online community and the wealth of data put together by their devoted effort. - http://www.h2g2c2.co.uk/?pid=7
    Perhaps we should flood 'Doomsday Reloaded' with entries from here :- http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2
    or here if for the old version :- http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/home

    @Ancient Brit, yes I was referring to what the plans are for domesday reloaded. As for H2G2 I believe the BBC are trying to sell it, unfortunately what happens to H2G2 is largely dependant on who takes it on.

    @Going_Digital - I am looking around here to get a feel of what is going on.
    I have seen other BBC projects in the past. Just curious to see how things go now that they are into Blogging. :-)
    Our contact is purely by chance you can come over to your space on h2g2 by clicking here :- http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/brunel/F21291495?thread=8218331&post=109033030#p109033030
    Looking forward to showing you around.

    An announcement on h2g2 may have helped to draw in the community.
    Once upon a time we had:-

    27 March 2002: Sense of Place Pilot Sites Launched

    The eagle-eyed among you may already have spotted three new DNA-based sites, but today sees the official opening of the pilots for A Sense of Place, here:

    A Sense of Place - Devon
    A Sense of Place - Lancashire
    A Sense of Place - London
    All three sites run on the DNA system, the same system that runs h2g2 - you can find out more about DNA in the Introduction to DNA. The clever thing is that if you head on over to any of these sites, your normal h2g2 account will work, as if by magic, and you'll be able to track all your Sense of Place contributions through your normal Personal Space.

    If anyone wants to pop over and contribute, then please do, especially if you know anything about the three areas mentioned. If the pilots are a success, then we're hoping DNA will be rolled out for a lot of other UK regions, which can only be good news for h2g2.

    As they say round these parts, share and enjoy!

    I believe the results are in the archives.
