UNESCO has launched an Audiovisual Resources Platform. It offers a unique access point to audiovisual material in the area of communication and information, which has been produced, sponsored or supported by UNESCO: documentaries, audio recordings, speeches, podcasts of meetings, etc. The platform already includes almost 100 audiovisual resources structured around the following themes:
  • Access to Information,
  • Media Development,
  • Capacity Building,
  • Memory of the World,
  • Content Development, and
  • Freedom of Expression.

Check out Planet Earth: From Place to Space, one of the available videos made in celebration of UNESCO's World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, 27 October 2007. It is a short trailer by the members of the Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) featuring materials from their collections.
