The BBC Archive thread

There's some really cool stuff that pops up in the BBC Archive's Twitter thread and we've had a few threads here on various things they have shared. I thought it would be nice to have a single thread to share as they come along.

To start this one I will repost the one I shared last year when it was first posted - was supposed to be a typical "person on the street" interview but this woman has some fabulous things to say about TV and its impact.

That was already posted here about a year ago, OP, but thanks for reposting. It is pretty fascinating.

Yes, I was the OP of one of those earlier/ original threads!

I thought of it to kick this one off, just because I find the stuff BBC Archives shares to be very interesting.

Why do Scottish men toss capers? It doesn't seem like it would be worth the effort.

More unappetizing British baking. No wonder they're thinner than Americans.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
