Universal Ties Up With BBC

Guardian: Universal Music has signed a deal with the BBC Worldwide (the commercial arm of BBC) that will give the company access to the largest radio and TV archive of its kind in the world. The two hope to earn several million pounds from the five-year deal.
BBC Worldwide is in talks with the other music majors about similar deals involving their artists. Anything ever recorded or filmed by the BBC by Universal artists since the 1920s to the present day could be sold on CD or DVD. The TV archives go back to the 1930s and include jazz and classical compositions.
