This week, the end is in sight on completion of inspection on the Welsh Film Board collection which dates from the 1970s to the early 1980s. There’s approximately 30 film reel boxes left to inspect and re-can. This collection’s condition has varied and has included positive and negative reels, magnetic sound reels and cans of trims.
You can view a good part of the collection via the Archive’s viewing room by request. A few of the titles which are worth a look, to name but a few, are Gwaed Ar Y Sêr, Newid Ger, Chapels, Madam Wen, Ty’d Yma Tomi!, Hen Dynnwr Lluniau & Teisennau Mair.
Also, a dissertation on the Welsh Film Board titled ‘Cleddyf ym mrwydr yr iaith : Y Bwrdd Ffilmiau Cymraeg 1970-86’ by Dr Kate Woodward can be read via the South Reading Room of the Library.
