This is about a digital doomsday book compiled in 1986 by the BBC that was (as of 2002, date of the article) unreadable.

They did back up the digital doomsday book eventually and BBC put it online, but they've now taken it down. Some of it can be viewed in the archives though.

OK cool, thanks for that Zoidy. Seems majority of the site is broke unfortunately.
