The pilot is part of the BBC's plans to eventually offer more than a million hours of TV and radio from its archive.

The BBC's Future Media boss Ashley Highfield made the announcement at an industry conference in Cannes.

I have been eagerly waiting for the launch of the BBC Archive since they first announced details regarding it back in 2004.

I have signed up already. You can sign up to register your interest in taking part in the trial here.

Well I am watching "999 Special: Diana's Legacy" which is from 1998.

The stream is only 225Kbps, but is extremly good nevertheless, the compression is excellent. There is no buffering whatsoever and had no problems using it, it just loaded up straight away.

Jumping/forwarding the stream also causes no problems and buffers in ~1 second.

So far, im pretty impressed.

The trial is just a taster too, there will be huge amounts more content when its actually launched!

Well done the BBC thumbsup

A LOT of the newer stuff isnt yet allowed on there without approval from the BBC Trust, also its only a "taster" of whats to come, a snapshot it what content will be available, hence its only in trial stages atm.

When it is finally launched to the public, it will be musch better and the content library will continue to grow for as long as the service is running for.

You can full screen the "little window" you know, its using the WMP applet, so just double click on the video.

wink

Too late now frown

The registration for the trial is over.

We'll all have to wait until it's full released, probably within the next few months?
