BBCPA Memory Bank Project

We are trying to do something rather different by giving longstanding and retired staff the opportunity to write their part of the unofficial history of the BBC.

If you are a serving member of BBC staff, you should be mindful of the BBC Editorial Guidelines on social networking and other third party websites

The BBC employs a historian to write the official history of the BBC. We are trying to do something rather different by giving longstanding and retired staff the opportunity to write their part of the unofficial history of the BBC using the Internet. The World Wide Web is an ideal place to store these memories because it’s flexible, the material can be connected to other collections and of course you can modify and updated it at will.

Not everyone is familiar with creating web pages so we have commissioned a special form for you to fill in. When you decide to publish your memories the software automatically creates the web pages for you. The finished web pages look like Wikipedia pages with which you may already be familiar. We have designed the form so that you can fill in as little or as much as you like at any one time. As long as you save the form you will be able to come back to it at any later date or time and just carry on where you left off.

When you click on the “Enter your memories” link on the left you will be taken directly to the form. There is some more detailed information on what to do.

The Memory Bank Project link on the right hand side takes you directly to our Wiki home page. Click on the “BBC Staff List” link to see the entries that have been published so far.
