Norwegian Television History on Europeana

Guest post by Mari Skarnes and Maja Wettmark, archive developers at the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK).

NRK Archive
The NRK Archive is responsible for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation’s archive collection. It holds radio and television programmes from the 1930s onwards. A government decision from 2007 obliged the public broadcaster to make all of its historical content available to the public, as long as this was covered by the programme’s legal rights. All programmes, with their accompanying metadata, have since been published on NRK’s web players tv.nrk.no and radio.nrk.no. In order to ensure availability to a wider audience, NRK Archive aims to share most of the transmissions’ metadata with stakeholders outside of the country’s borders as well.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: VIEW Journal Call for Papers “History of Private and Commercial Television in Europe”

 

***Extended deadline: September 27, 2016***

The perception of the European television and media landscape has been traditionally shaped by the contrast and constant comparison with the American one: state-run stations or public service broadcasting in Europe vs. commercial networks in the US. However, in most European countries it took to the last third of the 20th century, until commercial TV got proper permission, or started its activities. As a result, to date, the structure is characterized by coexistence of public service and commercial stations (in a mixed system only later opened to pay and over-the-top operators). ( Read more…)
