Protecting Yorkshire's TV heritage | RTS Yorkshire

An RTS Yorkshire event looks at Yorkshire's rich history of producing outstanding television content for regional, national and international audiences. The panel debates how important is it that both the legacy collections and new digital content are archived: that the material is protected and preserved, and made accessible for future generations, and whose responsibility is it and are the skills and training in place to make it happen.

Will Pitt, head of sport​ at video management specialists Imagen, was talking at an upbeat joint RTS Archive Group/RTS London event, “Protecting our TV heritage”, in early March.

He was backed by BFI head of conservation Charles Fairall, who noted that the digitisation of TV archive material has made it “instantly accessible”.
