Universities resurrect Domesday project

1st November 2002 at 00:00
Many people thought that the BBC Domesday project of the Eighties - to take a digital slice of UK life and store it on disc - had met its doom, consigned to eternity on redundant videodiscs. Not so. Despite the redundancy of the discs and the BBC computers that read them, attempts are being made to resurrect these resources for modern technology. It's a collaboration between Leeds University and the University of Michigan. More information from the project manager, Paul Wheatley, at Leeds.
