Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a recommendation, for the safeguarding and preservation of moving images, adopted by the General Conference of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Belgrade, held on 27 October 1980. Member States should bring this Recommendation to the attention of the appropriate authorities and bodies. All moving images of national production should be considered by Member States as an integral part of their 'moving image heritage'. Moving images of original foreign production may also form part of the cultural heritage of a country when they are of particular national importance from the point of view of the culture or history of the country concerned. Appropriate measures should be taken to ensure that the moving image heritage is afforded adequate physical protection from the depredations wrought by time and by the environment.
