Deadline 2025 campaign

There is now consensus among audiovisual archives internationally that we will not be able to support large-scale digitisation of magnetic media in the very near future. Tape that is not digitised by 2025 will in most cases be lost forever.


Help to save collections at risk – Australia’s television, radio and sound heritage is too precious to lose. Your donation will help us digitise more and save our history. Every donation makes a difference. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.
