Race against time to save VHS tapes

From Sunday Morning, 11:40 am on 2 July 2017

The XFR Collective is a team of archivists who meet in a loft in Tribeca New York every week and give their time to digitise tapes of social significance. But there's an impending sense of a deadline looming closer before the tapes degrade. Michael Grant (full beard, pictured with others from the Xfer Collective) talks about the issues facing their preservation - getting tapedeck players being a key challenge.
