BBC Written Archives Centre

The BBC Written Archives Centre looks after the working papers of the BBC. Our documents have been selected for permanent preservation because of their value as evidence or as a source for historical or other research.

The archive provides a rich resource for the history of broadcasting and the BBC, as well as twentieth century social and political history, biography, music and the arts.
