In Pictures: BBC vinyl archive auction

By in Features





Dip into the BBC archives. 

The BBC is auctioning thousands of items from its archive.

With a listing full of rare vinyl, equipment and BBC memorabilia, the auction–run by Omega Auctions–is a treasure trove for collectors and BBC fans.

“This does not constitute the entirety of the BBC’s vinyl archive which is very much still intact. This is largely the duplicate copies of LPs – so that collection can be moved and better stored for the future,” Omega Auctions explains.

We take a look at some highlights from the first auction.

Nathan Milstein – Music of Old Russia LP

The Running Man – The Running Man LP

Original BBC Studio Used ‘Type B’ Console

Columbia – Sax Classical
