Local history


In 1986 the BBC launched an ambitious project to record a snapshot of everyday life across the UK for future generations. A million volunteers took part in the Domesday Project

In 2011 the BBC published the survey online and for six months invited updates to the photographs and text to celebrate the 25thanniversary.

Shortly afterwards the website was added to The National Archives’ UK Government Web Archive.
