Most of the films and audio tapes in this series record important events such as the laying of foundation stones, opening of buildings, conferring of honorary degrees and installation of Chancellors. There are also copies of staff interviews broadcast by the ABC and recordings of George Dreyfus, an ANU Creative Arts Fellow, and his music. The originals are not available for access – some reference copies have been made and others will be produced as required.
