ADA – Opening up the BBC Archive with linked data

The BBC has a wealth of permanently available programmes across a wide range of subjects with very low viewing figures. We wanted to create a route into these programmes which balanced the need for curated, high quality journeys between programmes that would be easily accessible to our audiences with the limited resource available for that curation effort. In developing ADA we relied heavily on audience feedback to ensure we were creating intuitive, serendipitous journeys which could surprise and delight our audience while minimizing the producer effort required for maintaining the links. We investigated classification systems, hierarchies, ontologies and graphs and researched user preferences in regard to learning and archive access to develop a solution which met our audience needs in a way entirely different from the recommendation systems we have used in the past.
