BBC archives for teaching and research

The British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC) is currently working with Jisc and the BBC to establish which programmes and other items (e.g. documentation, photographs and sheet music) from the BBC archives would be of greatest value for the purposes of teaching and research in further and higher education.

To ensure they get this right, the BUFVC would like your view on which items, from 1922 to the present day, are most sought after by academics. They will use this information to highlight the need that currently exists for increased access to archive material. A short survey is available until 30th November to allow academics to contribute to this process.  Access the survey here.  All participants who submit a completed survey will be entered into a prize draw to win Amazon vouchers worth £50.

For an idea of the type of material that is already available from the BBC, have a look at their ‘Archive’ website.
