Es­sex sights and sounds to be saved

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

Rare au­dio and video record­ings held by Es­sex Record Of­fice will be pre­served for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions and up­loaded to the web as part of a new pro­ject. Made pos­si­ble thanks to a grant of £276,800 from the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund, the ‘You Are Hear’ ini­tia­tive will see the digi­ti­sa­tion of hun­dreds of film reels, tapes and vinyl records over the next three years, in­clud­ing a wealth of oral his­tory in­ter­views. De­tails and up­dates can be found by vis­it­ing es­sexrecord­of­fice­blog.co.uk.
