[Corpora-List] BNC dates

Does anyone have information on the text dates of the BNC (dates of publication or recording)? I have been parsing the headers and have managed to find something approximating a believable date in three-quarters of the texts, though surprised to see dates often not logged at all though sometimes visible e.g in the title. Perhaps there was at some time a log-file of some sort. Lou Burnard might know?

Reason for the request is I'm developing time-line facilities for WordSmith 6. Grateful for information on BNC in particular but also other well-established corpora.
