  • ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Want a lucky dip into history? NFSA offers up sound collection | ABC News” – below is their description.

    The National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra is offering up 77 pallets of international sound material which curators say do not fit within the scope of their collection.

    The archive’s head of collection, Jacqui Uhlmann, says there are thousands of old records, wax cylinders and a MasterTouch Collection of international pianola rolls up for grabs.

    The only catch is that collectors will not be able to view the material on offer — instead, each pallet will be a lucky dip.
