Welcome to the website of the Backdoor Broadcasting Company. We are a mobile audio webcasting service, which concentrates on recording academic research. We are hired by universities, learned societies and research institutes to record their research as presented at conferences, symposia, workshops, public lectures and seminars and to disseminate it to a ready-made world-wide audience.
Once we have the recording, it is edited to the required specification and the sound is enhanced. Then each recording will be presented on its own individual webpage, with additional information, such as abstract and/or publications. Every page can be linked or embedded to other pages and all carry social network buttons, as well as RSS feeds.
The website here serves as the archive, which can be searched by name, date, event and keywords (tags). All recordings are free to the listener and are covered by a Creative Commons licence, which means you are free to download them and to pass them on. All legal aspects of recording and dissemination can be found here.
Over there on the right you can see our radio player: for most of the time, it will play random selections from the archive. At other, specified times, it will carry live broadcasts. Underneath it you can see the search tools for the archive, and, below that, our latest additions to the archive.
Should you want an event recorded, please email us. We are based in the UK, in Oxford, and currently only operate within the UK, but can be persuaded otherwise.
We also design and host websites (latest examples here and here) for research projects and institutes, as well as offering a number of other services related to the dissemination of academic research, which can be found here. You can read what our clients have to say about us here.
A good place to start is our news page, which is also our latest newsletter (sign up for it over on the right). And remember, if you want to be kept updated of our archive entries as they occur, just ‘like’ us in the facebook way, by clicking on the FB button below…
So, start listening, the archive is right here.
