BBC is sharing

Monday, 20 July, 2009

Great news. BBC announces plan to share archives.

The BBC has launched a massive program to share its film, audio and document archives with other arts institutions in Britain, marking a new direction for the public broadcaster.

Alan Yentob, the BBC’s creative director, announced Saturday the new initiative will provide archival access, historic materials and even technical assistance in collaboration with the Tate art gallery, the British Film Institute and the British Library.

“As an organization we have to make the most of the downturn by responding to it … the BBC has an obligation to share what we have got,” he told the Guardian newspaper. Yentob said the corporation was also in talks with the Royal Opera House and the National Theatre.

“I see the BBC as a broker in these times,” responded Yentob. “It is the next stage for us. We must make sure culture remains confident in this country.”

Heritage Minister James Moore likes it. Will the gov follow up and borrow a page from BBC?
