BBC recordings archives now available online

Engineers and archivists are working together to provide both BBC radio and tv listings to the public via an online searchable catalog called Genome. The archivists (I love that) note that the cataloging, OCR,  and the software are not perfect. They are asking the public to help them with information. They expect Dr. Who searches will predominate. Their earliest recordings are gone as the BBC used to record over previous recordings.  Read about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-29643662
