Abstract

There was an avalanche of user generated content into the BBC this week as (south-east) Britain suffered its heaviest snowfall for twenty years. Head of the BBC Newsroom, Peter Horrocks, claims that 35,000 people sent in stills and videos. Some of it is up on BBC Online, some of it made it to air. Is this a global record for UGC?
