Sound Archives - Sarah Johnston

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:30 pm on 24 February 2016

A major project currently underway at the New Zealand Archive of Film, Television and Sound - or Nga Taonga Sound and Vision - is digitising and describing nearly 1,000 acetate disc sound recordings of New Zealanders made between 1945 and 1949. The New Zealand Broadcasting Service Mobile Unit collection was last year entered into UNESCO's "Memory of the World" register as being a significant national treasure of documentary heritage, and today Sarah Johnston from Nga Taonga is going to play us a couple of tracks from that collection.
