If you or your company, organisation or property has been featured in a BBC programme, you may be able to purchase a copy. Please read the information below carefully and if you would like to request a copy, click on the link at the end of this page.
The copy supplied is for personal use only. Any unauthorised use, transmission, distribution or reproduction of the material supplied through the Contributor Access process is not permitted under any circumstances.
Anyone who has made a substantial contribution to a programme, e.g. credited as a performer, writer, guest or production team member. This does not include studio audience members or those seen only in a crowd scene or group. Relatives may make a request on the subject's behalf.
We are required to cover all the costs of providing copies. Costs include research, sourcing and transferring of material, administrative and postal charges.
|TV and radio||Cost to customer (includes VAT)|
|DVD / CD copy of requested programme||£60|
|Additional copies of programme (when ordered at the same time)||£12 per copy|
|DVD / CD copies of subsequent episodes in a series (when ordered at the same time)||£30|
If you were offered a free copy by the production team, please contact them directly as BBC Archives cannot provide a copy free of charge.
Copies supplied to contributors may be made from archive recordings of varying quality reflecting the age and original format. Therefore, the standard of copies made from older formats may be considerably lower than those from more recent programmes.
If you've read the above and believe you meet the criteria, please complete the Contributor Access Application Form to begin the application process.
