Small Talk: North West Film Archive
Have you ever wondered how the town you live or work in has changed over the years?
Do you remember village fêtes from the 1950s?
The North West Film Archive (NWFA) has, in the last year, moved into its new home in the newly refurbished Manchester Central Library. As part of Manchester Metropolitan University, the archive provides a valuable insight into our history and has been preserving moving images since 1977.
In her latest podcast, Northern Soul‘s Sara Hughes went to Central Library to find out more from Marion Hewitt, the service manager and public engagement fellow.
