    The BBC Reminiscence Archive provides access to a selection of content from the BBC Archives, designed to support reminiscence therapy. The principle of reminiscence therapy is to assist people who have dementia to interact and converse in a natural way by stimulating their long-term memory with material from the past. A number of reminiscence systems have been developed for people with dementia. RemArc is the BBC’s contribution to this growing set of supports for people with dementia and their carers. The site is organised by Themes (such as Sport, Events etc.)and Decades. Users can choose whether to have Image, Audio or Video content. The results are randomised each visit, however items can be ‘favourited’ to return to later and there is an ‘information’ icon which displays a brief description of the item being viewed.

    What does it mean to be an investigative journalist today? Which are the tricks of the trade? Do you need to study it or is it all just about instinct and stubbornness?
