The BBC generates a vast quantity of information, broadcasting between 1,000 and 1,500 programmes per day and generating a significant news output. The BBC has also accumulated a very large archive of TV and radio programmes, as well as pictures, texts, musical scores etc. since 1922. Managing all this information constitutes a major challenge.
In this talk, after describing current uses of Semantic Web technologies at the BBC, we are going to describe some recent work undertaken by BBC R&D to investigate how a mixture of semantic Web technologies, machine-generated annotations and crowd-sourcing can enable us to manage and publish large archives of content very quickly.
