    Formerly the BBC’s Videos for Learning and Teaching and more recently known as BBC Active, this is an important catalogue for the wide-ranging video tapes of previously transmitted programmes offered by the Corporation to educational institutions. Sadly, as part of its rebranding, the prices have increased up by up to a factor of five (the average cost per title is now £125). The material however remains irreplaceable. It includes such classic documentaries as Life on Earth, The Ascent of Man and items from the Horizon series as well as the perennial BBC Shakespeare titles. These can be by title or contributor, as well as by series and by the following subject categories: Anthropology, the Arts, Business, Drama, Education, Engineering, Environment, Literature, Health & Medicine, History, Natural World, Science & Technology and Social Issues. These titles can also be licensed separately for online learning, festival screenings and exhibitions. Please note that only a small part of the holdings are listed online and it is a good idea to request titles directly.
