    This site presents a range of resources relating to a five year project (2013-2018) to research and document the history of British television broadcast technology from 1960 onwards. Led by Professor John Ellis of Royal Holloway, University of London, the European Research Council-funded project explores the ways in which the look and sound of the television programmes of the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s was directly affected by the technology used in the making of them.

    One of the project’s most original and inspiring ideas is to reunite industry veterans with examples of the technologies they once used and film them working with the old equipment. The resulting reconstructions have been turned into a series of videos which provide contextual material to stand alongside original archive footage and give a valuable insight into the teamwork and adaptability of the men and women working in what Professor Ellis calls ‘the heroic age of television’ . The videos are available on this site as well as the project’s YouTube channel and are available for reuse under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence.

    This site gives a fascinating glimpse into life in Austria in 1938, seen from the perspective of fifty ‘ephemeral’ films selected from the collections of the Austrian Film Museum, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute. These films - amateur, educational, industrial, scientific - act as a corrective to the official film record (mainly Nazi propaganda films) and give an insight into daily life in prewar Austria, depicting the vibrant Jewish community, the turmoil of the Anschluss and the persecution of the Jews which followed the Nazis’ takeover.
