    BBC Creative Archive

    Did anyone manage to get all of the BBC archive? We only managed the news items and "WW2 Peoples War". Wouldn't mind a look at the rest.

    Also. Has anyone got anything useful out of the "WW2 Peoples War"? Seems to consist of a load of XML.

    I got it all, not yet told the teachers though, I'm saving it as a surprise.

    If you wanted a copy I could stick the files on our webserver and you can download them overnight/weekend.

    Uh-oh, I have a feeling the schools webserver is going to get ganked. Oh well, it'll be a good test for her

    As long as no-one downloads during school hours, I'm sure we can handle it. Not too sure E2BN will like it, but I could care less about that ^^

    I'll stick them on the server tomorrow and get back to you with a URL.

    The BBC, the bfi, Channel 4 and the Open University set up the Creative Archive Licence Group in April 2005 to make their content available for download under the terms of the Creative Archive Licence, a single, shared user licence scheme for the downloading of moving images, audio and stills.
    The content we've got is from the BBC's trial which has now ended. When I checked it I think it was 6-8GB and 75,000+ files. WW2 Peoples War (the only file I have with me) alone has 55,549 files ^^;

    I can mirror the files if your server can't cope.

    I grabbed the lot but I don't have anywhere to dump them.

    Anyone needing it near Poulton-le-Fylde is welcome to pop down with a DVD or two to get a copy.

    Re: BBC Creative Archive

    Well my memory was slightly out, it's only 56,050 files.

    All six zips (and the licence) are now on our VLE.
    Please try not to download them during school hours for obvious reasons, but feel free to destroy my bandwidth overnight ^^

    @Geoff: Cheers, that's probably a good idea, although I'll be rather interested to see just how well this old server holds up.
