Time to open the achives?

It's been reported before about the BBC opening up the archive, to allow TV and radio shows from the past to be available to download. Some shows on BBC Radio 1 are archived and put online already, by third parties but there is a lot that I would like to get from the past, which although I could have recorded at the time, didn't.

The new Creative Archive License Group is a newly formed group that not only consists of the BBC but a number of other companies and groups. Check out the pilot information which details 4 stages over the next 18 months.

The BBC plans to make available 100 hours of programming in phase one, I'm not sure if this will be TV video footage only or if it will consist of other material too. I hope it includes old shows from the radio, if not I'm sure this will be supported later on.
