About the Home Archive
The Home Archive is a new service, developed to produce a comprehensive library of how the BBC Homepage changes throughout each day. It was developed by Matthew Somerville (the BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites) and was an initiative begun on backstage.bbc.co.uk.
Here, you are able to see the latest changes that have gone through on the Homepage, section by section. Also if you click on the 'Time' links on the left hand side of the main column you can see a 'snapshot' of how the page appeared at that time. The archive goes back to July 14, 2005 and if you click on browse by date you can view how the Homepage changed throughout each day and also how it looked at a particular time.
Not every change on the Homepage is recorded, however, for example, changes to the weather forecast. Everything else is tracked though, including when the page changes to breaking news or sport or when the main promotion slot changes to full page.
We hope you like this new service and find it interesting. Each day the Homepage shows a different story and it's all recorded here.
