Opening Up the Archives: Part 2- Keeping Ahead of Obsolescence
In this second part of the Archive Research film we take a look at the key challenges addressed by the 'preservation' work of R&D and the BBC Information & Archives teams. With interviews from Dr Richard Wright, Adrian Williams of I&A and others, Alex Mansfield gets to the bottom of the latest technologies being used to ensure that the critical challenge of obsolescence is handled, and handled effectively and efficiency.
With huge files, and critical quality checks essential to preserving the legacy of the archive, the best efforts of engineers and archivists are being applied to saving this content for the future.
Note: Apologies for the problems on access for non-UK viewers on the last film. We think this has been cleared up, but if you've any problems do let us know in the comments below or to our twitter account, @BBCRD.
