Archive on 4, previously The Archive Hour,[1] is a BBC Radio 4 programme which uses audio clips mainly sourced from the BBC Sound Archive to illustrate a different theme in each edition.[2][3]

A variety of guest speakers, often with a connection to the week's subject, present the show.[4]

The programme is broadcast on Saturday evenings at 8pm in the United Kingdom, and an archive of past issues is available to listen again.[4][5]

The first edition of The Archive Hour, presented by Claire Rayner, was broadcast on 11 April 1998.[6] The programme title was changed to Archive on 4 from 3 January 2009.[7]
