The BBC’s Programme Catalogue

Technology Thursday 3rd November 2005

The BBC has been keeping a vast catalogue of information about all the programmes it has put out for more that fifty years. It has been maintained all this time by a “crack team of librarians” and has so far been for internal BBC use only. Now, with the help of the BBC Backstage project (use our stuff to build your stuff) it could soon be useable for anyone on the ‘net and hopefully hackable for all of us geeks. Matt Biddulph is working on this for the BBC and gives us a sneak peek. Take a look at some of his screenshots, the breadth and detail of the information is vast.
