The BBC have made their entire programme catalogue online. You can search for anything in the records of nearly 1 million radio & TV programs, if only you could actually watch them once you have found it.
Have a look, see if any of your relatives have ever appeared on the BBC, this may help to settle some of those pub arguments such as when was the first appearance of X on TV. In fact the pub quiz may be in serious danger!
The indexed, searchable, and user tagged future is coming!
