Since Greg Dyke first announced the BBC’s intention, in 2001, to give access to some of the BBC’s huge archive there has been fevered speculation about the implementation and boundaries of this exciting, world-leading idea.
Using a computer, the British public will be able to download programming and programming excerpts at no cost. The hope is that this material will then be used to fuel their own creative endeavours, which will in turn be shared – creating new content from old. It is a bold project, with many obstacles to conquer.
Cut through the hype – come and hear the facts from Paula LeDieu, joint director of the BBC Creative Archive project. Paula’s presentation will be followed by Q&A.
