SABC Media Libraries: Springbok Radio handover to SABC

The Springbok Radio Preservation Society handed back their collection of archive material of Springbok Radio which was on the airwaves from 1950 - 1985 in South Africa.

During those days there was no archive, and the material would have been lost, if it had not been for efforts by people to preserve and collect that material.

Frans Erasmus has been instrumental in the Springbok Radio Preservation Society, and streamed a weekly update of material on the Internet.

The material is back in the SABC Radio Archives at the South African Broadcasting Corporation.

SABC Radio Archives  celebrates World Radio Day today #WorldRadioDay | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

SABC Radio archives reflects on the 1st World Radio Day today, endorsed by UNESCO.

 

The SABC Radio Archives preserves material for the following reasons:

 

"- To preserve SABC broadcasts and raw material as a corporate function;
- To be of service as a well-organised source of broadcast material to the SABC;
-To preserve permanently highlights in the history of the development and broadcast patterns of broadcasting in South Africa;
-To bequeath to future generations an audio-image of South Africa at certain periods as it was portrayed by the SABC;
-To provide researchers with information and facts on sound carriers that are not available in any other form;
-To preserve, as part of the National Broadcaster’s function and as far as possible, complete recordings of the South African culture legends and oral traditions, including a comprehensive set of nature and habitat sounds of South Africa
- We truly preserve some of the most precious memories of our history in radio.
Our existence is because of the medium of radio, a medium which are able to reach more people than any other!"
