Domesday: The Carsington effect


A Derbyshire photographer says recording the landscape and our social history is an important part of preserving our natural heritage.

Paul Hill is about to see some of the results of his work in cataloguing Derbyshire which, as yet, has remained unseen for 25 years.

In 1986, the BBC asked a million people to contribute to a digital snapshot of Britain called The BBC Domesday Project.

Until now the information has been locked away because the archive was created on technology which quickly became obsolete.

Now it is available for all to see.
