Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    The Public Record Office does not have facilities to view the tapes which currently comprise this series.

  • Function / Content
    This series comprises advertisements on video tapes created for use by the Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works.

    The contents of this series are currently limited to the P1 consignment which comprise seven 1 inch tapes created for the Boards Dont be a Wally with Water water conservation campaign in the late 1980s. It is thought that these tapes contain the completed advertisements which made up this campaign. A number of 35mm films which comprised various soundtrack or vision takes for the eventual finished product have been destroyed.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Although there are a variety of numbers on each tape box, it is unclear how these were originally controlled. These were probably allocated by the production company which created the advertisements for the Board and which stored them prior to their transfer to archival custody. The tapes have never been under the physical control of the agency. The description of each tape on the records description list has been obtained from the tape boxes.
