BBC video content available for creative reuse

"Free internet access to thousands of clips from public service radio and TV programmes is a step closer after the launch of the Creative Archive Licence. The BBC, Channel 4, the British Film Institute (BFI) and The Open University (OU) launched the scheme on Wednesday. It is the first stage of the Creative Archive initiative announced by former BBC director general Greg Dyke in 2003. Under the plans, the public will be able to "own" a copy of the clips and use them for their own creations."

"The BBC will initially make footage from natural history and factual programmes available under the licence, while Channel 4 has commissioned a selection of content. The BFI will be releasing silent comedy, early literary adaptations, newsreel footage and archive footage of British cities in the early 20th century. " Read the full story at

Dead Media

The Dead Media Project consists of a database of field Notes written and researched by members of the Project's mailing list.

The Dead Media List consists of occasional email to that stout band of souls who have declared some willingness to engage in this recherche field of study.

The collection of dead media working notes is the purpose of the mailing list; the accumulated, archived, (and now collated!) collection of submissions from list members; an ad hoc database of the deceased, the slowly-rotting, the undead, and the never-lived media.

Media Archaeology

This dossier on Media Archaeology is constructed to provide further reading in advance, and after completion of the mini-festival "An Archaeology of Imaginary Media" at De Balie, February 5 - 8, 2004. The dossier contains a number of key-texts on the relatively new approach to writing media history that has come to be known as Media Archaeology. We also provide links to key-thinkers in the field, most of whom participate in our project on imaginary media.
