Training for TV Ltd has recently prepared an introductory level 5-day training course that provides archivists with the knowledge they will require to understand the role and work of an archivist in TV or radio. The course followed a request from Ilse Assmann for a training course specifically aimed at broadcast archivists and to be delivered to staff in South Africa. It is primarily for those coming to the business with limited technical and practical knowledge of television or radio media and covers the technical side of legacy formats, as well as the design and workings of modern archive and MAM systems, along with discussion and reviews of the major issues which an archivist working in broadcast needs to deal with.

It is proposed that excerpts from this training be offered at the conference to potentially enhance the delegates' own knowledge, but more importantly to give members an opportunity to assess and see what the program can offer.

In addition to an explanation of the course's curriculum and syllabus, it is proposed that two topics from the course are offered as a taster of the content and style. The section on working with videotape will look at the basics of how machines work and the range of tape formats and types an archivist might encounter. The section on working with film will look at types, gauges, and uses of film and film sound and the practicalities of working with film.
