Research by the Centre for Media History (CMH) at BU was the motivation behind a committee formed to raise awareness of the problem. The committee strongly supported the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to make their catalogue available to the public via the British Library (BL) and the research itself informed the library’s new sound archive policy.
