Digitising the video collection, the work continues…

Slowly but surely we are working our way through the videotape collection of television documentaries broadcast over the past three decades and turning the lovely old VHS formatted tapes into shiny new DVDs.

Some treasures of the collection recently digitised and currently on display in the library are listed below. Click on the title to be taken to the item’s catalogue record where you can see what the programme is about in more detail and reserve it to borrow once it is removed from the display.

If you would like your favourite television documentary from within the collection moved up the queue then please ask a member of Howard Gardens Library staff.
