25 years ago the BBC and communities all across the UK were involved in an ambitious project to create a modern-day Doomsday Book. Stored on special Laser-Discs (a technology that never really caught on) and readable only by BBC Master microcomputers the data has been virtually inaccessible for years. The BBC have now produced a website to display a collection of the material and have launched a new project to produce entries to bring the archive up-to-date. There are suggestions of how schools and communities can get involved on this page of the site together as well as some activity packs connected to the project.
