BBC Music Beta

BBC Music

The BBC have just launched a public beta of their music site, BBC Music. Using data from MusicBrainz! and Wikipedia, BBC Music Beta enables users to explore artists played on BBC Radio. Artist profiles currently show a biography, discographies, BBC appearances and related artists information with the data available in a variety of ‘RESTful’ formats including XML, YAML, JSON, RDF, Atom and RSS.

The IA is good and the overall design works well within the new BBC web guidelines. It definitely looks like it should easily scale as more data gets added and it looks like there’s plenty of scope for integration with other BBC data sources such as programmes, events, news, album reviews and even iPlayer. One to keep an eye on!

Monkey Magic!


Not only have Damon Alban and Jamie Hewlett been busy working on the opera ‘Monkey: Journey to the West‘, but they’ve also put together the new animated campaign for the BBC’s coverage of the Olympics. There’s also loads of goodies on the BBC site including an interactive screensaver, and Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy masks. Great stuff especially if you were a fan of the cult 70’s TV series.
