Are the contents of the pre-2006 revamp website Production Archive stored anywhere? There was lots of stuff there with brief descriptions going back to the early 90s which would be a starting point if nothing else. Jonathan 19:45, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes, we made sure we kept a backup, but it won't be web-accessible at the moment. I'll see what I can do - if I got it visible online would people be prepared to copy some of the content across? Ta. Rowan 22:00, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Get it on the sandbox, I can do some copying. Rick 08:56, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

OK, this is now available at http://ystv.york.ac.uk/oldproductions - by all means canibalise all it's info :) However, the formatting is crap and it's littered with dead links so please be aware that this will not be staying on the site. DO NOT LINK TO ANY OF IT, or anything like that. Just nick the data :) Equally you can steal images, but upload them to the wiki. Muchos gracias, and have fun! Rowan 18:12, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Ace, ta. That'll keep me busy tomorrow! Rick 23:26, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Can we please keep the specific programme websites that the old production archive links to online? I don't see why these should be taken down - they were online for years quite happily as a nice archive of what the shows were like (going back to 1997!) and it'd be great to be able to say on the wiki site "the website is still available here". Off hand I think there are sites for Election Nights 2000-2003 (not sure what happened to 04 and 05's sites), Games Disaster (number of series), This Afternoon, Lazy Lunch, Red Braces, Joker in the Pack, Cooking With...I really don't see why these should be lost.
