John Wilson discusses how arts organisations are opening up their archives, collections and data with studio guests Bill Thompson, Head of Partnership Development, BBC Archives; Drew Hemment, Founder and CEO of Future Everything; and Dr Paul Gerhardt, Director of Archives for Creativity.

Including: what arts organisations need to consider when digitising their archives as we hear from bespoke archive Siobhan Davis Replay alongside the Google Art Project; the V&A and the Public Catalogue Foundation on how involving the public in tagging your digital archive can create new ways of experiencing a collection; how organisations can use their data innovatively and creatively, opening it up to the public and even developers; and the British Museum on working alongside other cultural institutions to revolutionise the way we search collections data through the web.
