Scope and content

This accession is divided into 4 series according to format: ‘Textual’, ‘Audio’, ‘Video’, and ‘Cinefilms’.

The second series, ‘Audio’, includes audio elements in several formats for productions. Of particular interest are recorded testimonies of veterans who were interviewed for The Valour and the Horror.
