NPR: Enthusiasts Work to Preserve Educational Movies

NPR's Morning Edition, February 14, 2006 · The Academic Film Archive is working with the Library of Congress to make a worldwide database of all the old educational movies it can find. And in St. Louis, in an effort to preserve these classic 16-mm movies, a group is holding monthly screenings of films like The Living Soil, which was produced by Shell Oil Company in the 1960s to extol the virtues of pesticides. Matt Sepic of member station KWMU reports.

Is it possible that Skip, our favorite A/V Geek holds most of the collection?

Those films were such an integral part of our upbringing. :) Glad to see they won't be lost to future generations.
