Opening Up the Archives: Part 5- Finding the Content
After a brief hiatus we are returning to our continuing serial- Opening Up the Archives. In this week's episode Alex Mansfield introduces us to the complexities and challenges of metadata. From the written archives come a lifetime's worth of Radio Times back copies, which Bill Thompson explains are in fact crucial repositories of historical information about broadcasting in the UK.
Radios Times 9-15th February 1985. Part of the archive of Radio Times that provides a crucial historical metadata store for the BBC.
And back in the archives themselves, Alex waxes lyrical on the nature of one of the finest recordings within the BBC's extensive collection.
Our final episode will be posted next week, and to see previous episodes go to this listing of all the blog posts in this series.
