Growing Pains

The BIRTH Television Archive (BTA) is the World's first internet archive of vintage from the early times of European television. This unique archive was built up by five major European television archives from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Österreichischer Rundfunk (ORF), Nederlandse Instituut voor Beeld and Geluid, Radio Télévision Belgique Française (RTBF) and Südwestrundfunk (SWR) together with the technical partners Joanneum Research and Noterik Multimedia. Currently, the BTA comprises more than 630 television programme items, over 370 images, 110 television guides and schedules as well as over 80 articles.
