BBC digitises all Blue Peter episodes

September 24, 2018

The BBC is marking the 60th anniversary of Blue Peter next month by digitising every single episode and allowing fans to share their favourite moments online.

The move is part of a celebration of the diamond jubilee of the corporation’s longest-running children’s programme, which will also feature a live special on BBC2 on October 16th starring many of Blue Peter’s past presenters.

Blue Peter’s editor, Ewan Vinnicombe, commented: “BBC Archive [has been] going through digitising every episode of Blue Peter there’s ever been into the digital archive so we can then please all the different audiences for all the different clips they want.”
