Help tag this collection of BBC radio programmes from the past 45 years
You might be interested in an experiment that BBC Research & Development is doing to put the BBC World Service radio archive online. The prototype website includes over 50,000 English-language radio programmes from the BBC World Service radio archive spanning the past 45 years, though not all are available to listen to due to rights considerations. You can explore the archive, listen to the programmes and help improve it by adding data. You need to register to use it, you can do so here: http://worldservice.prototyping.bbc.co.uk
We are running this as an experiment into how to put large media archives online using a combination of algorithms and people. The original descriptive data for the archive was quite sparse so all the programmes have been categorised by a machine listening to the audio, and we are now asking people using the prototype to validate and improve this data to make it better for everyone.
