Ooh, how exciting! Well, possibly. It might all be a big, wet, squib but we shall see. A while back I expressed an interest in signing up to the BBC archive trial, and today I got an email that says I’ve been selected. I’ve got a mental list of childrens dramas from my childhood that I would like to see again if they are included in this… 😉

Hello and thanks for signing up for the BBC archive trial.

We thought you’d like to know that we’re in the final stages of preparations for the trial. We’ll e-mail you your account details in just a few weeks and then you’ll have access to hundreds of hours of programmes.

We’ll be bringing you a range of radio and television programmes from the 1930s right up to the 21st Century, including dramas, comedies, variety shows and some stunning documentaries. You’ll also be able to witness key moments in history, discover the lives and stories of incredible people, and see well-known faces in their first TV appearances.

We’ll be back in touch with more information very soon, but for now we’d just like to thank you for registering and let you know how much we’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the trial.

The BBC archive trial team
