Bbc-written-archives

The BBC Written Archive Centre contains all the internal written documents and communications from the corporation from the launch in 1922 to the present day. Its collections shed light into the behind the scenes workings of the corporation and also elaborate on the difficulties of getting a television or radio programme to or off the air as the case may be. The archive guidelines state that access to files post-1980 is restricted due to the current nature of the files; the general exception to this rule are documents such as scripts and Programme as Broadcast records. The Written Archives are located at the BBC Written Archive Centre in Caversham, Berkshire, near Reading. The centre houses the archive on four and a half miles of shelving along with reading rooms. The centre is different from the other BBC Archives in that the centre opens for writers and academic researchers in higher education.

The BBC Written Archive Centre contains Peel's running order of his Radio One shows written on PASB (Programme As Broadcast Forms) scripts held on microfilm, between 1967 and 1996.

Peel's session sheets between 1967 and 1996 are held at the centre, along with Peel's production wallcharts, planners, diaries, files, notes and recollections.

The source of the majority of Ken Garner's Peel's sessionography mentioned in his Peel Sessions book come from the BBC Written Archives Centre. In the book, Garner mentions PASB's are generally very reliable, but not perfect, because sometimes when they were microfilmed, shows or pages were missing, or strips of paper for individual musical items were accidentally overlaid on others on the camera platen, obscuring some parts of the show. He also mentioned that session sheets were good, but very often the broadcast date was not on them, because they were decided on a later date.

The Peel Radio One scripts stop in 1996 on microfilm, due to Radio One moving shows information on basic digital music copyright reports.
