Preserving Broadcasting History

Project is a continuation of a study begun in 1967 which examines problems relating to the preservation of radio and television recordings. ABSTRACT: Project is a continuation of a study begun in 1967 which examines problems relating to the preservation of radio and television recordings. The phase of the project to be undertaken in this study is continuation of an inventory of TV and radio materials held by the nation's networks. CBS holdings surved during 1969, and a research methodology was established. Goals of this phase of the continuing study are: 1) to complete an inventory of material of potential historical value now held by NBS (NBC ?); 2) to gather supplementary information in one area at CBS where study was not completed in 1969; 3) to initiate some investigation into the general nature of ABC's holdings. Project is a preliminary step to consideration of the nature, costs and support of a permanent "Library and Historical Center of Radio and Television Recordings," and organized collection of bradcast recordings for historical study.
