The film collections comprises mainly non-fiction material since 1896: advertising films, corporate videos, community projects, documentaries, local newsreels, publicity films, educational material, films by civic bodies and other regional organisations and a large number of amateur collections. The significant television collections include regional broadcasting by Anglia Television and BBC East from 1959 to the present. The Anglia TV material and much of the Archive's core collection is searchable in a comprehensive database.
The Archive has Bosch and Marconi 16/35mm telecines and 9.5mm, standard 8mm, super 8mm small gauge telecines. These formats can be transferred to a range of video tapes (including to or from obsolete formats) and to Hard Disk Drives. For further information please contact Clare Ellis.
