The BBC has been at the heart of British national life for 100 years. Throughout 2022 we’ve delivered a huge amount for audiences. In January, we launched a new BBC History website, with dedicated BBC 100 collections around 100 Objects, 100 Voices and 100 Faces and we’ve given the public a chance to look into our archive with the BBC Rewind website. We’re visiting 400,000 school children as part of our Share Your Story education initiative and we opened up our digitised archive to students.
In October there will be a special week of programming for audiences to enjoy.
James Stirling, BBC 100 Executive Editor, says: “For 100 years the BBC has been informing, educating and entertaining the nation and our centenary year has been no different. From an incredible summer of sport, to the epic return of Glastonbury, we’ve seen audiences come to the BBC in record numbers.
“Alongside this brilliant programming, we’ve been visiting hundreds of schools up and down the UK with our ambitious education initiative, BBC 100 Share Your Story, and audiences are continuing to uncover the story of the nation through our most extensive digital archive collection ever, BBC Rewind.
“Our centenary celebrations are at the forefront of our October schedule. During our special week of BBC 100 content, audiences can look forward to a mix of exciting new commissions alongside some of our best-loved shows, as they mark a century of broadcasting in their own unique way. There really is something for everyone and we’re looking forward to sharing this moment with audiences across the UK and beyond.”
