5 British Universities Newsreel Database (BUND) Database of 160,000 British cinema newsreel stories BUND based on principle of context The film of itself is meaningless, or can have false meaning placed upon it, without an understanding of the conditions under which it was made A newsreel was made by a company, working under particular conditions, responsive to particular news values, responsive to particular economic pressures It was filmed by someone, edited by someone, commented on by someone, shown to the audience of its time Cataloguing data, documentation, background history, all support understanding of the film itself

10 Newsfilm Online Traditionally difficult to access either data or the newsfilms themselves from commercial television news owners In 2001 Independent Television News (ITN) indicated willingness to co-operate with education ITN Archive holds over 130,000 hours of newsfilm, from 1896 to present day Interest led to ten-month scoping study examining ITN collection from an educational perspective Successful bid to CSR2 digitisation fund to encode 3,000 hours of ITN newsfilm Programme over thirty months, ending late 2006 All selected items to be downloadable and editable, designed for educational re-use, in perpetuity

11 Newsfilm Online How to select 3,000 hours out of 130,000? Select firstly according to date and type of broadcast Problem of third party materials Offer users both complete database and materials packaged according to curriculum needs Insist on context - news stories as part of a bulletin, data on production, events and personalities Privileged access to universities and colleges only through authentication software Further protection through Digital Onscreen Graphic ITN, and earlier example of British Pathe, demonstrate how commercial archives can serve a public access agenda, to the benefit of everyone
