BBC Caribbean Archive: Historical Events

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

Historical Events


The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) archive is a valuable primary and secondary source for modern-day historical research, both for its narrative and descriptive detailing of historical events. Daily recordings from the Caribbean Report feature provide analysis of economic, environmental, international relations, social, political, military, health, sports and cultural issues.  As such it is a unique reference tool which exists in digital format. Although the collection covers the period 1988 – 2011, this page captures topical events occurring between 1988 and 2000. Frequent up-dates will be made as more news reports are posted, thus giving the researcher a brief look at topics that are available in the database.
