Section 13: Re-use and Reversioning


The BBC's archive is a great national resource, of huge value to the public.  We are committed to making this heritage accessible to the widest possible audience.  Similarly reaching and engaging new audiences is the motivation behind syndicating material so that those who may consume little BBC content can discover it for themselves and enjoy more of what we have to offer.

BBC content is made to the standards in the Editorial Guidelines in force at the time of its original production.  With the passage of time, those standards may change.  This section outlines the additional steps that should be taken when content is re-used, distributed or otherwise made available, in whole or in part, in ways that may not have been contemplated at the time of production.
