The BBC and partners have established a communications site for the forthcoming Creative Archive which intends to allow UK citizens greater access to audio and video content from the archives.
The faq contains a response to what appears to be a much asked question: “Will I be able to get old Dr Who episodes?”
The official response is “Sadly you will not be able to get old Dr Who episodes in the early days of the Creative Archive. However, it is hoped that the BBC will in time be able to expand its contribution to the Creative Archive to include programmes from all genres.”
The archive was first suggested by former BBC Director-General, Greg Dyke.
