BBC finishes Radio Times archive digitisation effort
Saturday, 8 December, 2012 9:01
The BBC has completed its effort to digitise programme listings from old copies of the Radio Times magazine.
The BBC Genome project is designed to help the organisation identify shows missing from its archive.
Most early output was not recorded and many later tapes were destroyed.
It will be used to create an online database allowing, where possible, the public access to old broadcasts - or available photos, scripts and other materials for missing shows.
