Preservation Of The BBC Radio 1 Archive

The BBC Radio 1 Archive, which started in the 1960's, comprises over 40,000 tapes and DATs. The majority of the tapes are unique master recordings of pop music and interviews. The catalogue data was on legacy database systems, and incomplete. Given the historic and commercial value of the archive it was decided to provide improved access and protection by digitisation. The main transfer, to CD-R & DVD-R, started in January 2000. The paper looks at the solutions adopted to address the issues of; efficient mass transfer, choice of digital media, improved access, migration of legacy data, file formats and metadata.
