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.

The suspect in the ITV true crime drama, John Cooper, had appeared in the game show, which gave the police incriminating evidence to convict him.

“Being able to access that kind of thing is absolutely amazing,” said Mark Witty, a producer at ITV regional news show Calendar, who was talking at an RTS event on the importance of TV archives in early February.
