The creative use of digitised archives: roundtable to be presented at the BBC at 100 Symposium

The BBC at 100 symposium, organised by Dr Marcus Collins, Reader in Contemporary History and AHRC BBC 100 Fellow at Loughborough University, takes place at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford, and online, between 13th and 15th September 2022. A team from the Centre for Social Informatics (CSI), with a colleague from the BBC Archive, is delighted to be presenting at this event.

Our ’roundtable’ contribution entitled The creative use of digitised archives: case study of Lorna Lloyd’s ‘Diary of the War’ podcast series will centre on the creative use of digitised archives in the work that we undertook for our AHRC Creative Informatics funded Platform to Platform (P2P) project, and its sister project Heritage Organisations and Podcasts Scoping Study (HOPSS).

Between us, Dr Bruce Ryan, myself, and Marianne Wilson (CSI) with Jake Berger (BBC Archive) will present a case study on the ways in which we have used BBC Archive material as we have transformed Lorna Lloyd‘s personal testimony of World War II from textual format into a series of sound files, contextualised by contemporaneous news reports, as a non-fiction podcast series.

For further information about the roundtable, please see the description in the Edinburgh Napier repository.
