BBC Digital Revolution rushes for you to download and edit
What can you do with these rushes? Whatever you want, subject to the terms of the license. Let us what you're up to, as we'll be featuring the best uses of the rushes very week.
Once we have more rushes up, we'll also be setting some specific challenges - watch this space, or sign up to our Twitter @BBCDigRev for updates.
Releasing rushes like this is an experiment, and there are some limitations. We're not releasing all our rushes, for two reasons. Firstly, we have a compliance procedure at the BBC which means that all online video has to be viewed by a senior manager - there's simply too much footage to do this properly. We do estimate that we will be releasing around 5 hours of interview material, featuring 20-30 interviewees, and up to an hour of other content.
Secondly, it's the nature of an interview that some parts don't really work, and would always hit the cutting room floor very early. Our series producer, Russell Barnes, has selected the key parts of each interview to post first. If there's a strong demand for more rushes from particular interviewees, then we'll certainly try to do that.
The rushes are released under an international permissive licence, inspired by but not identical to the Creative Commons Licence. It covers some elements not covered by that licence - for example, you're not allowed to use the footage to suggest the BBC's endorsement or on websites aimed at young children.
We're releasing the rushes sequences in the .mov format - exporting .movs gives us highest quality for a reasonably sized file, with the least compression . Please do feed back to us if you think there is a strong case for also providing a different format.
This is an experiment, so we welcome your feedback - please do let us know what you think by commenting here or by contacting us direct.
