Almost 1,000 hours of KUED video content will be available to the American public thanks to a pilot project created by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
The CPB American Archive Content Inventory Project is creating a national digital archive based on the vast production archives of a selected number of public television stations. KUED was chosen as one of those stations.
As a charter member of the project, KUED is shipping 1,000 hours of video assets to a national center that will digitally preserve them in a catalogued format that eventually will be available to the public.
In addition to hundreds of television programs produced between 1980 and 2000, KUED also is providing many hours of“raw” field video from our its documentaries in the West, as well as hundreds of interviews filmed with veterans as part of its Utah World War Two Stories documentary series.
"In a very real sense, our work on the local level has formed the basis of an important contribution to this national effort to preserve history, issues and personalities," says KUED Director of Production Ken Verdoia.
