BBC and BFI bring archives to life
March 11, 2009
The BBC and BFI (British Film Institute) are working together to develop plans for increasing public access to their respective audio, film and TV archives. This agreement draws on the opportunities presented by the development of digital technologies, in particular the expansion of the UK’s broadband infrastructure, which allows both the BBC and the BFI to continue to contribute to the building of Digital Britain.
The BBC and BFI’s intention is to explore new ways of making archive content and material available to all UK audiences, across the widest possible range of distribution platforms, while developing an industry standard approach to the management, storage and distribution of archive content and related assets.
