    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.

    An independent news website sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. The Conversation launched in Australia in March 2011 and in the UK in May 2013. It is a not for profit educational entity, funded by universities, that aims to rebuild trust in journalism by providing independent, high quality and authenticated information. The articles, written by academics and researchers with some help from professional journalists, are organised by subject areas like in any online version of a broadsheet newspaper: Arts & Culture, Business & Economy, Education, Environment & Energy, Science & Technology, etc. Interestingly, each article displays a disclosure statement indicating the author’s funding and any potential conflict of interest. The Fact Check UK section includes the statement being checked (e.g. ‘Is freezing eggs really ‘extremely unsuccessful’?), the link to its original source, a Verdict and a Review by an academic who gives his/her opinion on whether and why the author of the statement is right or wrong.
