A week has passed since being given the go ahead on my proposal and images have been arriving from Parliamentary Archives and permissions for using some others is being sought. I’m spending plenty of time resizing images and organising my new external hard drive. Two people in the group have confirmed they can attend the day set aside for audio recording in December. The edit needs to be pretty much done so we can watch it through and then work on a script / notes as a guide.I’ll then work with the technician to bring it all together and try to figure out how to use dropbox as a delivery method for what is likely to be a rather large file size.
As I have been photographing the documents I have come across items I didn’t get a chance to look at when we had our weekly meetings. I am sure the group feel there was plenty of materials which they also didn’t get a chance to look at. Such is life on projects which are running to a timescale. Most of the documents we had out on our trolley are back in the strong room, I will finish recording the others tomorrow. The archive is closed for a stock take next week, I wonder what that involves – surely it can’t include checking all the documents they hold, maybe a random selection? Will ask tomorrow and find out.
