Spending all day at work watching television might sound like a great way to earn a living, but after three years of painstaking research through the vast BBC archives, the idea might wear a little thin.

And from today a new website, the first of its kind, is opening up access to a rich treasure trove of footage from BBC Northern Ireland’s archive.
Weeks and months of searching through the BBC vaults in London and Belfast has unearthed more than 13,000 broadcasting gems and, as the corporation prepares to celebrate 100 years next year, the new portal is being presented as a fully searchable gift to the public.
