EURORADIO 2013 – Suggestion of Laurent Marceau (EBU) about a new project: #WW1_Xange

EUROVISION / EURORADIO World War 1 archive exchange

Dear all,

I’m contacting you on the suggestion of Laurent Marceau, about a new project that may be of interest to you.

EUROVISION and EURORADIO plan to create a multi-platform pool of TV / radio archive content relating to the First World War.

Participating broadcasters would supply media assets (audio / video) from their archives, and in return have access to similar clips from others.

Relevant clips might include newsreel, recollections and anecdotes from WW1 witnesses (in particular taken from the period 1930s-1970s). All items would carry an original-language transcript and English translation to facilitate re-voicing.

I’d be very pleased to hear from any of you who felt this could be useful in your organisation.

kind regards,
