Hello Stephen and a warm welcome to the forum. I've been enjoying your series very much indeed. I wonder if you had a view on the discussion thats been aired in this thread on the use of archive footage and the costs involved? Hello Jonathan: archives, films and costs ? Its a really tricky one because these things - especially where publically funded in the first place - are really there for everybody to use for education and enjoyment. Conversely if archives are not well funded it is difficult for them to keep going, let alone develop, expand, and improve, so most make some sort of charges. Huge debates on this on the archivists on forum ARCHIVES-NRA@JISCMAIL.AC.UK PS Thanks to all for warm welcome.
