This is a privately run web site.  Click About BBCeng for details.



This web site started in January 2006 and in the last ten years it has grown to nearly 5GB in size, as a result of contributions from about 250 people.  It now forms a significant record of BBC engineering, and considerable interest in the subject still remains. Web statistics indicate that about 100 pages are viewed per day on average (not including software web crawlers etc.).

On 8th November 2015 I sent Flash Drive copies of the entire web site to the BBC Written Archives Centre and the BBC Pensioners' Association, in the hope that the contents will be retained indefinitely for reference.

Please see the About page for information concerning the future of the web site.

The next update is likely to appear in January 2016.
