A national broadcaster, a national repository? - the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) Film and Video Library

The Film and Video Library of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation was established in 1965.  It collects and preserves a variety of programmes and ceremonies such as swearing-in of heads of states, independence declarations, Farmers Day celebrations, daily news coverages etc.  As it is with most public archives in our sub-region, a greater part of the collection has been locked away due to obsolete media formats, lack of technical skills to manage the collection, and the climate condition.   Meanwhile this unique collection is expected to be the nation’s repository. I will speak about the GBC collection to the IASA community, highlight the challenges being encountered and use the opportunity to open up for help and collaboration.
