BBC Heritage Department

26th January 2008

The BBC Heritage Department are using an iBase digital asset management system to catalogue their large collection of historical broadcasting material, which includes important documents, sound and video clips, interesting and unusual props, sound and television equipment of all kinds such as microphones, cameras, recording systems, monitors etc…

There are many works of art, including paintings by Rolf Harris, a portrait of Patrick Moore by Robin Lee Hall, a bronze bust of Edward Elgar by Tom Taylor, and very much more. BBC Heritage’s choice of the iBase system and database schema was influenced by its unique flexibility in dealing with a wide range of disparate items, each of which requires a different emphasis from the descriptive and searchable metadata.
