Apparently it's archive week at the BBC and there are blog posts all over the BBC and an excellent Guardian Tech weekly podcast to mark this auspicious occasion. In case you missed them (and there are a couple more to come before the end of the week) here they are in full:

Update: 20th August: see also Peter Skinner's post "A New Home For the BBC Archive" on the About The BBC blog (NR).

Nevali has not only been making some salient points on this blog he's also been busy on his own blog, most recently responding to BBC online boss Erik Hugger's post HTML5, open standards, and the BBC. It's worth reading Line-by-line: HTML5, open standards, and the BBC in full.

And nevali's previous post is a nice follow up to Meet the Green Button! New Developments on Freeview+ and Freeview+HD: Trailer Booking which featured on the R&D blog (and I missed cross-posting it because I was on holiday).

Max Gadney from BBC multiplatform introduced the prototype of Dimensions, a juxtapostion of historical data with stuff you know based on your location. Matt Jones from BERG, the people who created it, explains all on the BERG blog. Go have a play with it.

Paul Murphy is the Editor of the Internet blog. Before you ask this is the info I have about the image from the archive:
"BBC News Editing 01/01/1998 BBC, BBC News Editing, News VT Tape Transfer in BBC TV Centre London. Beta Video Recorders."
