As part of the project, 25 new oral history interviews with BBC staff will be filmed. These will be of individuals who are not included in the official BBC , but who have a significant contribution to make to the collection. The interviews will cover their whole lives, not just their BBC career, and they will broaden the scope of the collection. Each will be transcribed and tagged, linking them to existing resources.

The project has conducted interviews with:

  • Annie Nightingale
  • Johnny Beerling
  • Mark Tully
  • Mike Phillips
  • Satish Jacob
  • Tony Blackburn
  • Lorna Clarke
  • Gienek Smollar
  • Elisabeth Robson Elliot
  • Peter Udell
  • Fi Glover

Further interviews are planned for 2021.
