BBC News Archive
An interesting way of summarising the BBC headlines.
History of individual stories
A timeline, both visual and textual, for each unique story mentioned on the front page. For example, the history of #4771586, Crash lands shock Oscar triumph. This is interlinked from the other prototypes.
An improved version of a current prototype, showing the distribution over time by category of headlines.
Displaying all the pictures used to illustrate front page stories, the image timeline provides a visual overview of a month's news. This page is large, and can be slow to load.
Any combination of stories can be plotted on a visual timeline. The system also lets you store one you've created (by using the search) with a title for ease of access; for example, the timeline of Big Brother 2007.
The following dates are missing from my archive and prototypes, due to various problems such as server failures:
- 1st–3rd, 5th–7th, 30th November; 6th–31st December
- 26th January, 4th–5th September, 25th–31st October, 13th–18th and 27th–30th November, 11th–21st December
The following dates are missing from the archive, but are still in the prototypes, as the summary files were made before I lost the archived archive:
- 1st–24th October
