From October 2010 to May 2011 The National Archive of Educational Computing loaned a BBC Domesday set to the BBC to help develop this project

In the run up to the launch of the Domesday Reloaded project, the BBC used it as a reference machine, for photography and for convincing decision makers in the BBC to revisit the Domesday national data collection exercise with a comparative, participative web site - Domesday Reloaded - bbc.co.uk/domesday.

Richard MIllwood and George Auckland revealed the loaned original Domesday equipment together with the BBC Micro used by schools to capture data for the Domesday Project in 1984/5.

BBC Look East also filmed and broadcast a piece on May 17th 2011. On June 9th 2011 the Brentwood Gazette published an article summarised on their website.
