Audiovisual documents, such as radio, films and various TV programs, audio and video recordings, contain the primary records of the 20th and 21st centuries. Much of the world’s audiovisual heritage has already been irrevocably lost through destruction, neglect, decay, and also, lack of skills, resources, and structures, thus impoverishing the memory of mankind.
It was in this context, that the General Conference in 2005 approved the commemoration of a World Day for Audiovisual Heritage as a mechanism to raise general awareness of the need for urgent measures to be taken and to acknowledge the importance of audiovisual documents as an integral part of national identity.
