BBC Records - BBC's favourite format

Which format did the BBC release the most items?

Posted by Mike (2024-02-23).

Well by far the largest amount of one format is albums, then singles. It is quite a gap after this for the next most favourite items.

NOTE: The results below include all records I have, not just those which you can buy in the shops. Even so, the majority of releases are albums whether this is restricted to publically available releases or not!

Also I have not catalogued everything, so some of these would be far higher if I did (probably the biggest one would be books as the BBC have released several thousand over the years and I do not actively collect them.)

As always, I am still actively collecting singles, 10 inches, 12 inches, 16 inches, albums and CDs from this list, but I am also starting to collect Laserdiscs which doesn't have its own section.
