Conference programme

Today, most broadcasters devote resources to web-based forms of television,
both in terms of new programming and older programme materials. Broadcast
archives are becoming increasingly important as ‘old’ television content
has the potential to attract online users. As a result, the major question
for audiovisual archives, scholars and media professionals is: What does
the current shift to online forms actually imply for television heritage?

The conference Television Heritage and the Web will discuss and analyse the
opportunities and challenges of the current media changes. The conference
includes a range of international experts and a workshop titled EUscreen
best practice applications showcase, which explores the exploitation of
broadcast material in the fields of learning, research, leisure/cultural
heritage and creative reuse.
