BBC unveils plans to digitise Shakespeare archive and overhaul iPlayer 

The BBC’s Shakespeare archive is to be digitised and made available for free to schools across the country, under plans unveiled by new director general Tony Hall today.

Hall, outlining his vision for the BBC, also announced a new version of the iPlayer, which will allow users to access programmes for up to 30 days after their initial broadcasts and even watch shows before they have been transmitted on TV. The BBC said this would allow viewers to “create their own evening schedule”.
