Abstract

At BBC Audio and Music Interactive we have been working on the programmes and music projects.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes

http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/beta

'programmes' aims to provide a permanent web presence for every programme the BBC broadcasts, one page per programme brand, series and episode.

'music' aims to provide a persistent web presence for every artist, integrated with programmes so that you will be able to click through from an artist page to all episodes within a programme brand that has played that artist.

In this seminar we will present the motivation behind these projects, how their design and implementation has allowed us to expose their contents on the Web of Data.
