The creative use of digitised archives: case study of Lorna Lloyd’s ‘Diary of the War’ podcast series

  The roundtable discussion is concerned with the creative use of digitised archives in the work undertaken for the AHRC Creative Informatics funded Platform to Platform project. This centres on the exploitation, augmentation, and exhibition of a set of existing archive data by transforming a young woman’s personal testimony of World War II in textual format into a series of sound files, contextualised by contemporaneous news reports, as a non-fiction podcast series. A number of external partners have supported the project: the BBC Archive provided broadcast sound files and news scripts for the events mentioned in the war diary; Find my Past and the British Library gave the project team permission to use print news items from the British Newspaper Archive in the podcast script; and the Malvern Museum – where the original copy of the war diary is held – contributed much to the organisation of the podcast series launch event in Malvern in May 2022, and provides access to the episodes of the podcast series.
