Media Network Series Two Episode 2 - Revisiting Vienna 2018

Media Network videos are hosted on Vimeo for the time being. 

In Episode 1 we visited the largest international radio archive on the planet. That was in September 2009. I kept in touch with its curator Wolf Harranth on and off, while my own career took an entirely different direction. But in May 2018 work took me to Linz in Upper Austria and being so close, I looked up Wolf again. A lot had changed and at the time of recording this episode, the entire future of the collection was uncertain. Their address had changed. They were now in the industrial part of Vienna where the Austrian Radio and TV, the ORF, keeps its logistics warehouse. So, for what seemed the last time, I met up with Professor Wolf Harranth for another instalment of unique international broadcasting history.

This episode is hosted on the Media Network vintage vault
