BBC Genome: The Complete Broadcast History of the BBC (UK)
Helen Papadopoulos, Project Manager of BBC Genome, writes "In September we will begin the full-scale project of digitising over 80 years' worth of broadcast records. That's approximately 400,000 pages of Radio Times, 3 million programmes and 300 million words to recognise through OCR. In less than a year we expect the Radio Times digitisation project to be completed and for the first time there will be, in one place, a comprehensive record of every programme"
