BBC Archive projects and collections
Whilst the main focus of I&A’s work is on maintaining the BBC’s Archive and providing material for use in BBC programmes, the department is increasingly working with other organisations outside of the BBC.
Long standing relationships exist with the British Film Institute (BFI) and the British Library (BL) who provide access to BBC material for academic research purposes. For TV please contact the BFI and for Radio, contact the BL.
Projects currently underway with external organisations include the following:
- The provision
of digital files of preserved BBC Radio Archive material to the
advice and expertise to the National Archives regarding the digitisation of
London 2012 Olympic footage, deposited with the National archives by LOCOG.
(The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games).
approaches and strategies for web archiving with the British Library.
- Provision of BBC drama programmes to an Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project researching TV dramatizations of Theatre plays.
