Save our Sounds: 15 years to save the UK’s sound collections – Sound and vision blog

The UK’s audio collections are under threat. Often created on media that over time has become unstable, they are at risk – both from physical degradation and from the obsolescence of technology to replay them.

Professional consensus is that we have approximately 15 years in which to save the UK’s sound collections before they become unplayable and are effectively lost. The solution is to digitally preserve them, but the scale of the task required is considerable and time is running out.
