What happened to the Creative Archive?

Updated Friday 31st October 2014

The Creative Archive was an iniative between the BBC, BFI, The Open University and other partners.

Thank you for your interest in the Creative Archive, a resource offering free film footage drawn from the OU archive that had been cleared for use in the UK.

The pilot ran for a year between 2005 & 2006, and the OU continued to make video available under the licence until 2010.

Although the Creative Archive is currently unavailable online, we continue our policy of making educational materials as open as possible - where we're able, content on OpenLearn is released under a Creative Commons licence for you to reuse, remix and republish as you wish.
