Unreeling History: Preserving and Providing Access to "All Things Considered," 1971-1983

The digital reformatting of nearly 6,000 hours of broadcast audio records of the National Public Radio’s news magazine program All Things Considered, 1971–83.

The National Public Radio, Inc., (NPR) Research, Archives & Data Strategy team (RAD) seeks a grant of $350,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize, preserve and provide public access to early All Things Considered radio broadcasts. All Things Considered was public radio’s first national program and featured the most important events, people and stories of its time. In 1972, the program made history when host Susan Stamberg became the first woman in America to anchor a national news broadcast. All Things Considered programming provides both the primary-source material and context to build a richer understanding of American history, culture, communications, sound studies, journalism and the cross-disciplinary studies of gender, race and class. By capturing the sounds and voices of the past, the program provides an immediate window into history.
