Forum: classic_tv_emperor Subject: Items digitised by NFSA in last 10 days

I notice that the National Film and Sound Archive (Australia) has been digitising many items lately. By browsing and keeping records of their website, I discovered that in the last 10 days the following has been digitised: 10 television items from the 1960s 24 television items from the 1980s 7 television items from the 1990s 1 television item from the 2000s 6 radio items from the 1960s 5 radio items from the 1970s 8 radio items from the 1980s 2 film items from the 1910s 2 film items from the 1920s 8 film items from the 1930s 3 film items from the 1940s 4 film items from the 1950s 1 film item from the 1960s 4 film items from the 1970s 6 film items from the 1980s 4 film items from the 1990s 1 film item from the 2000s [note: I only checked radio, TV, and film. They also hold other kinds of material such as sound recordings and "networked media", but I don't check such holdings. Additionally, they do collect modern material from the 2010s, including podcasts, but that doesn't interest me) Though this stuff isn't readily available, I still feel it's worth noting. They do upload stuff they hold the copyright to on their YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/FILMAUSTRALIA However, they don't hold the copyright to most of the stuff they've digitised. The type of items can vary, for example, in terms of television it could include episodes, commercials, outtakes, news footage, one-offs/specials, continuity (such as promos, station identifications, between-program filler, etc), file footage, and such. As I mention above, I don't work for them but like to regularly check what they hold...I have a lot of free time.
