Videotapes Are Becoming Unwatchable As Archivists Work To Save Them

Some are old videos of police brutality; others are just weddings or old public access TV that isn’t saved anywhere else. All tapes are from people who want their content to be publicly available, and after the tapes are transferred, they’re stored on the nonprofit Internet Archive. To date, they’ve transferred 155 tapes—67 hours in total. – Scott Greenstone, NPR http://ift.tt/2rEtjh9
