My colleagues in the Creative Archive team have just announced two 4 month placements (funded by Arts Council England and hosted by the BBC). An advert turned up in the Guardian (pdf) on Monday for artists who
will have the opportunity to develop their professional career by undertaking research and producing new art works that creatively reuse sound and television materials from the BBC Archives. The placements offer specialist support and hosting by the BBC. Each of the successful artists will be eligible for a bursary of £10,000.
Ah. So thats why I work for the BBC.
