An archive of audio recordings from the British Broadcasting Caribbean Service covering the period 1988-2011

About BBC Caribbean Archive

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Caribbean Service donated its archive of recordings to The University of the West Indies (UWI) after it ceased broadcasting on March 25, 2011. This archive of audio recordings covers the period 1988-2011 and includes BBC  flagship programmes Caribbean Report (morning and evening drivetime editions) and Caribbean Magazine. The BBC Caribbean Archive is currently hosted within the UWI Institutional repository UWISpace. This unique collection provides a contemporary record of the political, social, cultural and economic issues pertaining to the Caribbean and supports the needs of  regional and global researchers in multiple disciplines.
